Kraftin' Kimmie - Mermaid Birthday Card

Morning all! I finally inked up a new stamp that arrived in my mail box last week! 
I started off by stamping, and colouring this cool mermaid (from Kraftin' Kimmie), I used my Spectrum Noir Markers (of course), and then glittered her tail with some stickles. I set her aside to dry, overnight, and came back to building a card yesterday morning.... I used a eclectic range of patterned papers, firstly the dictionary paper is from Teresa Collins, the blue triangled paper is from American Crafts (My Girl collection), then, the blue 'wavy' paper is actually a small strip of Echo Park, Scoot paper. It has helicopters and clouds on the top section, but I just trimmed out the portion I wanted... I then stamped my sentiment in versamark, on plain vellum, and heat embossed it, with white powder. 
**TIP** I cut the vellum longer than I needed it to be, and scored the where they'd overlap the blue waved papers edges. I then attached tape to the back of the wavy piece and stuck the vellum done. (I don't own vellum adhesive)
I added three small sequins to finish off this card. Here is the close up -
