Fishy Birthday Wishes with a MFT sketch

Hi all! I'm entering this card in several challenges:

Top Tip Tuesday #67 was an anything goes challenge.

Tuesday Throwdown #79 was to use something shiny on your creation. I hope glitter counts? I used stickles on the mermaid tail and glossy accents on the collar of the mermaid's shirt.

The Pink Elephant #129 was also an anything goes challenge.

Paper Sundaes #101 was to use something old and something new in your creation.
For something new, I went with the MFT Dainty Dots die-namics and Copic markers. For the old, there's some retired Stampin' Up! designer paper that dates from 2006 apparently, and some Die Cuts With a View patterned paper that is also old as heck.

ABC challenge was to use green in your projects or to use a recycled item. One of the layers of dainty dots Die-Namics is green (Stampin' Up! Kiwi Kiss card stock) and also the patterned paper with the fish has some green fish on it.

Here's the card:

I used the sketch for the old MFTWSC15. The challenge expired long ago, but I wanted to catch up with the sketches. The clouds were drawn by hand with the Copic multiliner 0.8 on blue card stock and cut out. Also drew the seagulls over the sentiment with the multiliner. 

Supplies used: 
patterned paper: Die Cuts With a View unknown collection; Retired Stampin' Up! pink designer paper (says copyright 2006); Fancy Pants Design- Beach Babe collection
card stock: Georgia Pacific white; Stampin' Up!-Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss; unknown yellow and blue
stamps: mermaid image is from stash but I think it's a Hanglar; sentiment is from My Favorite Things- You're So Tweet set
ink: Memento in Tuxedo Black
Copic colors: Hair-E49, E52, E59; skin-E21, E51; R81, R83, YR15, YR18, multiliner 0.8
