Flowers and Bubbles

Good Afternoon

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Hope everyone is ok as we hit another Wednesday, only three
more Wednesdays then we will be getting into November,
its frightening how quickly this year is going by.

Anyhow seeing as it is Wednesday, its time for another
challenge over at Penny's Paper Crafty and this week
our theme is 


Our sponsors for this week challenge are

Prize - 7 Digi images of winners choice


Prize - 3 Digi images of winners choice

I have again made two cards but this will be the last time I will doing
this as our DT member Kim is back. Next week I will be back to 
making only one card, so without further ado, the first card has
been made using the image Floral Trio Frame for Bugaboo and
you can purchase it HERE.

 1. Card size is 8 x 8 and I have matted it with burgundy card
       that I have embossed using a dotty folder (sorry don't know
         the correct name but I think its one of Crafters Companions )
 I created another mat still using the dotty folder but this
  time I used black card. Before these were adhered to the
      card, I wrapped a strip of red ribbon which has black spots
on it across the two layers. (Sorry for some reason the
picture has come out a bit fuzzy)

     2. The floral frame trio were coloured with Copic markers
        and I then cut the frames apart and matted onto red and
black spotty embossed card.

3. I arrange them so that I had room at the top to add
the sentiment and a triple layer bow at the bottom.
A black pearl gem was added the centre of the bow.
 The happy Birthday is one of the new Tonic Dies and
    again I added a black pearl gem to the centre of the star.

Card Two

1. Circle card is from my stock and I have folded
it to create an easel card.

           2. I have then matted it with two circle dies that have
                  been cut out blue centura pearl card. The flourishes 
               are Tattered Lace dies and I have inked them over 
                with antique linen distress ink before adhering to my

                3. The image in entitled Thea Boo Blowing Bubbles and is
                  from Lacy Sunshine and you can purchase her  HERE.
                          Again coloured with Copic markers and then fuzzy cut her
                     out. She has been mounted onto the card with foam tape.

                4. I added glossy accent to the bubbles a smaller circle to the
          bottom of the card to act as the stopper and to finish
added a row of pearl droplets.

There you have it, I hope you will go on over to the challenge
blog at Penny's Paper Crafty and join in. Looking  forward
to seeing what you come up with.

Until Next Time
As Always
Take Card and Happy Crafting
