Time for the Bubbly!

Tomorrow is my good friend Eileen's 50th birthday! I just got this Time for the Bubbly set from MFT, and thought it would be perfect as we are planning on getting her a spa gift, too! I did the paper piercing technique on this so I could use the dp as *wallpaper*. I first stamped the image on SU's new Afternoon Tea dp and then stamped it again on whisper white. I used my copic markers to color the tub, legs, rug, and mirror. I used a silver pen on the mirror to get the shiny mirrored look. Once colored, I cut the tub and floor out together, then cut out the mirror. I adhered them directly to the dp (over the image I had previously stamped). The bubbles are covered in Crystal Effects and glitter. I did lots of layers in groovy guava, chocolate chip, and sky blue. I used my new Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder for the large blue mat. The yellow marvy circle and oval punches were used for the sentiment. I also stamped *Relax* on the mirror. I used the slot punch to bring the ribbon through. In hindsight, I would have tied the ribbon higher or put some brads on the empty space in the right corner. The ribbon is slightly covering the sentiment. Not a big deal, and I am happy with this one! Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think!

This card is amazing! I've often thought of purchasing this stamp set, and your card is pushing me "over the edge" LOL! I LOVE how you made the wallpaper with the beautiful SU paper, and the color combo is beautiful! I enjoy your blog, I'm just usually a stalker, but had to comment on this one!
