  1. The pink and teal together make a great color combo, Nicola!

  2. I would never have though of pink and teal together but it is lovely great colouring and use of pearls. Thanks for sharing with CHN patterned paper challenge.

  3. Great card, love the pink and teal you have used, it works so well. Thank-you for joining us at the Colour Crazy Challenge this week.

  4. Nicola, this is stunning. Your colouring is amazing!.

  5. Wow! She is GORGEOUS! I love the color palette you used as it is more non-traditional than what's expected. It adds such a pop to your scene and I wanted to meet this aquatic girl and get the name of her hairdresser! The subtle ombre effect of the scales in the background is so elegant and the whole thing came together beautifully. Thank you for sharing such an amazing piece with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  6. Oh how absolutely gorgeous, Nicola! I love the vivid pink and turquoise colours! Thanks for entering our Birthday Bloghop at CRAFT Challenge!

    love Mags B x
