The card base is a step card made using a cut file from SVG Cutting Files.  It is called Center Step Edged Curved Card Base.  I cut the white circle with one of the Stitched Circle Dies from Jaded Blossom.  I then cut the grey layer with a Spellbinders die called Picot Edge Circles.  The waves are from the "ZooBalloo" Cricut cartridge.  I used some diamond Stickles on the white caps of the waves.  I used some blue, grey, and white sequins to finish off the card.

The mermaid and sentiment on the circle are from the Mermaid Kisses stamp set by Jaded Blossom.  I colored the image with Distress Ink markers by Tim Holtz.  I then added some Wink of Stella to the blue of her hair and her tail.  I also used some glossy accents on her eyes.

The seashell is from the "Sea Shells" digital cartridge.  The sea weed is from the "Splish Splash" cartridge.

The sentiment on the side part of the step card is also from Jaded Blossom.  The "happy birthday" part is from the So Many Birthdays 2 stamp set and the "from under the sea" is from the Mermaid Kisses stamp set.

I made this for the following challenges: 
Color Throwdown: color challenge
Die Cuttin' Divas: water safety or blue
Cute Card Thursday: more than one fold
