Lili of the Valley Mermaid Happy Birthday Card

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well! I am here with a card for a friend using a stamp I hadnt got round to inking yet! I loved this stamp and bought it a while ago so its lovely to finally use it :-)
I used My Minds Eye papers with kraft and coredinations cardstock as accents and white card as my base.
I began by colouring the mermaid and seahorses with promarkers and adding glitter accents using distress stickles. I mounted the image on a scalloped circle cut from coredinations cardstock. I then covered my card with a panel of kraft, peach cardstock and mme papers, to which I added a border with kraft, peach cardstock and another mme paper. I placed my image to one side, then embellished with pearls, a bow and a 'Happy Birthday' dome sticker.

Id like to enter this into the following challenges:

So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently.
