PCS Lily at the Beach - Sneak Peaks Day 2

Another gorgeous Lily to share with you today. Isn't she beautiful with her long flowing hair? Mermaid Lily has been coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. I have also added some stickles for some added sparkle. The papers are from the Sunshine paper pad by Me and My Big Idea's. I cut them out to create this wavy effect and added fibres for some fun texture. The cute little fimo buttons were from my friend Stephanie. I embossed the below panel of cardstock with CB folder spots and dots.

Could this sentiment not be anymore perfect for this Lily?
Don't forget to check out the links on my previous post to all of my wonderful team members blogs.

See you tomorrow for one final sneak and to reveal the complete set!
