Do all little girls think they're mermaids

I seem to get quite a few requests for mermaid cards for people's daughters.  So I have a question - do all little girls that can swim think their mermaids?

Anyway..... this image is the most adorable mermaid image I've found so far and the card already has a home.  The image is Little Mermaid from Digistampatelier.

I've coloured it in pastel shades using ProMarkers and added some water around her.
Cut out with a Spellbinders die, she's been edged with the same colour pastel aqua.

The papers I've used are from First Edition and Santoro Gorjuss.

Added are a silver anchor and shell from The Ribbon Girl.  The cascade of flowers are a mixture from Petaloo and Hobby Craft.

The card has been left black so I can personalise it
