Stampin' For the Weekend First Challenge

This is the first challenge launched on my birthday last Friday.
The theme "From Dusk to Dawn" using the colours purple and yellow.
Anyway here is my card using my favorite stamp at the moment Mermaid Anya, I have used Sakura Stardust pens so it is nice and sparkly (as mermaids should be).
Papers from K&Co(yellow) and Papermania (purple), flowers from Prima finished with adhesive stones,little dots of liquid pearl in 2 corners, seahorse charm from my stash.
Thank you for the challenge ladies, I don;t normally use yellow but it looks fab with purple.
