Oh... How pretty! The colors that you used are just what I think of for sea colors, and I love all of those pearls that you added. They kinda look like little bubbles or something. But there really pretty in her hair, wouldn't that be nice to have pearls in you hair like that! Nice touch with the feathers as well, they go great with the background paper.
