Blowing Bubbles

I just adore baby elephants and Blowing Bubbles has to be my favourite.  Loving those bubbles lol.  The papers are K & Co, from one of the packs that Lili of the Valley will be selling at upcoming shows.  The tags and sentiments are the new Clear Additions which will also be on sale at Harrogate and NEC before going on the website in April (if they can keep them in stock long enough – methinks these are going whizz straight into orbit lol)

I did the “out of box” technique so I could use a smaller circle nestie to fit on the  MTF Die-Namics doily die.  I used the doily border as well on this card.   The lush blue loopy trim is from The Ribbon Girl

The carnation type flowers are made from the flat blooms from Wild Orchid Crafts, they were white to start with till I attacked them with pink glimmer mist.  The green leafy swirl is a Bosskutz die.

The image has been coloured with Promarkers, can’t remember the colours I used as I sat and coloured them at work each day during my lunch break (yes they all think I am nuts and they ain’t wrong!)

I followed a sketch from a challenge blog and for the life of me can’t find it!  If someone knows which one it is please let me know so I can give credit.  Thanks xx

  24. Hi Bev, love this card as I love elephants very much. This one stole my heart (your big friend Jacque has her card with this cutie on its way to me; can't wait till it arrives). Your card is so adorable with the ribbon & flowers and the colours you have used. By the way I don't think you're crazy to colour during lunch time ( I do the same thing, when I am not walking with my dogs). Hugs from Holland.
