I made this card on one of my stamp 'n' play dates with my Stamping buddy Dawn. The image was a freebie from Sassy Studio Designs. We had a such a fun  time making the cards (see Dawns here), drinking coffee and babbling on:O). We are trying to learn how to colour hair with markers and I still have a long ways to go, but not about to give up!

Card Details:
Stamp:  Friday Freebie from Sassy Studio Designs called  Bubble Bath; the background stamp is Rubbernecker's  Bubble background
Punch: Fiskers for the border edging -wove turquoise/teal ribbon through the edging and a Martha Stewart punch for the flower branches
Die Cuts:Spellbinders for the ovals, Stampin' Up  Sizzlits set Birds&Blooms for the flower
Other: Crimper for the solid part of the edged border, a pearl, and epoxy stickers for the bubbles (or at least some of the bubbles)
Note: Some of the bubbles  appear to be quite dark in the picture, but IRL they are very light. No matter what picture I took my hands and camera were reflected  in the epoxy stickers. Most annoying - finally used Paint Net to try and remove enough of the reflection out of the bubbles so you could not see the camera or my lovely hands:O) !
