Sweet Pea Mojo174

This is my first card challenge this year, and I managed to get this one to fit three challenges. 

1)  MojoMonday174. I turned the sketch on its side then flipped it.
2)  Sweet Pea Stampers: All white apart from the image.
3)  In a Sweet Pea Dream: "Under the Sea"...Use a mermaid or sea creature image.
4)  Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog:  Bingo.  I used punches/dies, embossing, and ribbon (bottom row).

All of the white CS is Neenah Solar White. I used two different Cuttlebug embossing folders. The image is ching-chou kuik's Coral Immersion from Sweet Pea Stamps.  I've kind of become addicted to these georgeous fairy/fantasy style stamps! She is colored with Prismacolor pencils, with Stickles added.  The edges of the image and both embossed panels have been glittered.  The flowers are from a couple of Martha Stewart punches.

This is a close-up of the colored image.
