YNS Mermaid card for a few challenges

Good morning everyone. As I promised yesterday that today I will be posting a card I made for a few challenges. These challenges are:

Sketch Saturday #84
- Sketch
Copic Color Challenge #45 - to use Copic markers YG03, BV02, B93
Stampin for the Weekend - New Beginning
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Party Time
Incy Wincy Designs Challenge #24 - Bling it up

Here is my finished card. I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday, use the Copic Color challenge required Copic markers for coloring the images, made this as New Year theme to celebrate for the beginning a New Year! I am using the "Just Swimming By" stamp set from YNS. This week YNS is the sponsor for Sketch Saturday and one lucky winner will win this "Shopper Fhiona" stamp set. So be sure to check out the Sketch Saturday Challenge this week.

Oh my I love it!
I just can't find the time to use the stamps I have from this company. But every time I see one of your wonderful creations Cabio I pull them out.
This is just so cute. I love your style with these stamps.

Wow. Very cute. You have the patience to cut those tentacles. I don't mind cutting but honestly I don't like cutting. Everyone keeps telling me move the paper and not the scissors. Do you have any other trick up your sleeve cutting anything intricate like these tentacles?
