Mermaid ArtChix Block

I've been looking at this Mermaid for a couple of weeks now. I was trying to decide what to do with her...almost used her in something else...and then this evening it just came to me.
I had this block of wood that was already prepared with the right color and was just begging to be arted up. I added some antiquing to the edges to match the ArtChix image and then found the words "Happy Little Maiden" in a ArtChix collage sheet. Added the lace around the top, the numbers 15 because I like the copper color with turquoise, an dthen added the silk ribbon. The final touch was the shell on the ribbon. I think I picked that up while on vacation several years ago and it's been sitting on my kitchen window sill ever since.
These Mermaid Cards are the Monthly Special over at Artchix. A whole set for only $4. Another DEAL!!

Lovely Christy. Love your mermaid. Very whimsical. Does the 15 have a meaning or was it just the numbers you picked?
