SFTW colour challenge/photo insp

Hello friends! I have to say that I have started to feel a teensy bit better (phew). It still definately feels like I have swallowed razor blades wrapped in sandpaper (yum) and it hurts to talk (probably a good thing!) but the shakes and temp have gone so I must be on the mend!
There is a new challenge over at SFTW again for another 2 wks and we have 2 fab sponsors the wonderful Simon says stamp and Bugaboo. To be completely honest I was going to miss this one out. I have felt very little energy to do anything let alone craft and my mojo has certainly gone into hiding with my immune system! But I wanted to get back into it (I find it hard to stay away from my crafting desk!) so where do I go when my mojo ego needs a bit of massaging?! Saturated Canary of course lol!
I have used Authentique papers on my card along with some obligatory cheesecloth, lace and flowers from WOC with a prima flower thrown in for good measure. My embroidered butterfly is again little snippets and my little bottle 7 gypsies filled with micro beads.
The challenge is to use blues, browns and creams with this photo for inspiration
I have used the sketch this month over at CLP and have used this stunning mermaid digi from Saturated canary, my sentiment stamp is from SU. I have distressed all my edges with vintage photo ink.
My images has been coloured with prisma pencils and I have used a stempelglede stamp around the corners. I have also used liquid pearls for the tiny bubbles in her hair.
I would also like to enter this into Catch the bug anything goes, Allsorts free and easy, Papertake weekly anything goes, Paper pretties add texture, Crafts and me use a new image (she is new to me!) and Crafty purple frog  flower power.
Thanks so much for coming by my blog again, do check out the rest of the teams awesome creations!  I also have candy if you are interested folks!
Big hugs to you all
