There's an East Wind Blowing!

Hello crafty friends
Well today it's time for another post for Through The Purple Haze.
A bit of a sad day for me as this will be my last post for the lovely ladies at TTPH.
Due to many reasons, most of all health related reasons, Anita has decided to close the blog at the end of the month.  So next week's challenge will be our last ever challenge.
I have not been with the girls for very long but I can honestly say it has been an honour and a privilege to be a part of such a lovely bunch of crafters who still work hard each week to bring you lovely projects for your inspiration despite their own health problems.
Most of us are on Facebook so fortunately we will all be able to keep in touch with each other.
Anyhoo, on to the challenge for this week.
This week's challenge is:
Our lovely sponsor is:
I have used the gorgeous image called
Lucy Loo Mermaid which you can find here.
Digital Stamp- 'Lucy Loo' Mermaid- 300dpi JPEG/ PNG -MAC0062m
And here is the card I made.
The image is coloured with Prismacolour Pencils and Copics.
The "White space" is actually a shade of green which I did using Pan Pastel chalk.
You can hardly see it but trust me it is there. Lol. 
Not sure I am happy with the colouring on her hair or tail but hey ho, no time to do another one now..
The bow is made using a sheer two tone ribbon which I bought from Brenda's Lace and Ribbon specials on Facebook - why not pop over and have a look. Click here to visit Brenda's page.
So there you have it folks, my last card for Through the Purple Haze Challenges.
I do hope you will still find the time to join in our last two challenges as it would be a shame to miss out on the lovely prizes on offer.
