Summer is Coming at Craft Rocket

Hello again everyone, it's time for a new monthly challenge at Craft Rocket.  Our theme this month is Summer is Coming.

I made this card a little while ago for a gift exchange at a cross stitch retreat.  I think mermaids and the beach are very summery and the seaside was the theme for the gift exchange.

The chart was from World of Cross Stitch magazine and was stitched 2 over 1 on 14 count aida using the recommended DMC threads.  I changed it slightly as it was meant to say have a fin-tastic valentine's day.  I removed valentine's, moved up day and added the clam shell from one of the other charts in the series to fill in the gap.  The sparkly paper is from a pad I bought in Lidl ages ago.  I keep hoping they'll have those pads again but I haven't seen them since.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
