Little Mermaid Birthday Card

Although I love every single Disney movie made, my ALL time favorite one is The Little Mermaid.  I wished I was her and had a fish tail all the time:)

My goddaughter just turned three and she had a Little Mermaid themed party!! Cutest party ever! I got to make her her birthday cake.  This has become a tradition each year, I included some pictures of this cake here too.

This is the card I made.  I had plans for something a little fancier, but we had a disaster with the cake and I ended up making a new one and stayed up with my sister-in-law till 3 in the morning!

so this is the card I ended up making:
The base is from Art Philosophy as are the circles.

The image of Ariel is from Dreams Come True.

Here is a side view so that you can see the dimension on it.  The sentiment is from CTMH.  It came in a bundle with the Art Philosophy cartridge.

This cake was so difficult to do, but it was worth it. It tied the whole party together. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
My Craft Spot: Shaped Birthday Card
More Than Favors: Circles
Cardz Tv: Anything Goes


  1. Super cute little mermaid! Great shape too! I hope you will come over and enter this at the CCR shape card challenge deets are on my right sidebar!

  2. How perfect! My daughter thought she could turn into a mermaid by eating tons of fishsticks when she was younger. That didn't happen, but maybe she will nmarry a prince charming when she gets older. : )
