TINGO with Glitter!

This was one of those cards that started out without a clear idea of where I was going - and lots of 'oh, that's not working' along the way. I think it's still ended up as a great card for a girl (but next time darnit I'm having a plan!)

Supplies: Mermaid digi from Tiddly Inks; Spectrum Noir markers; Paper Smooches swirls die; 1.5" and 3/4" circle punches; PTI sentiment; Salty Ocean distress ink; Clear EP; Tumbled Glass distress stickles; seam binding ribbon from stash

The shimmery paper I used to die cut the waves and the sentiment "bubbles" was one I sprayed with mists before Christmas, so I'm not sure what I used. The blue marker ink bled a bit on the tail & bikini top so I added Stickles to distract from that! 

I'm playing along with the Tiddly Inks Challenge of TINGO (using dies, a Tiddly Inks image, and ribbon):

And with Creative Card Crew, where the challenge is GLITTER. (CCC is also having a DT call!)
