Bubble Over

Happy Monday!  You know that best thing about Mondays now is the Inspiration Challenge.

This was a cool picture this week.  There was just so many different ways that you could go.  I decided to go with the linear look of the panels (these are represented by the bottomed) and the colors.

This really was just such a fun a card to make, I really liked the way it turned out!

Here’s the details…

  • Tutti Frutti Real Red print – 2 1/4 x 5, add to card front
  • Tutti Frutti Lemon Lime Twist print – 2 1/4 x 5, add to card front
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/8 x 4 1/2, cut two, add to card front on an angle and trim ends

Here’s the details…

  • Calypso Coral – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded; stamp the dots using Caylpso Coral
  • Painted with Love dsp – two strips 1/4 x 5 1/4, add to card front top one aligned left, bottom one aligned right
  • Whisper White – 3 1/4 x 4 1/4, stamp celebrate in Melon Mambo and Let’s in Rich Razzleberry
  • Gold Foil – 3 x 1/2, add behind right side of panel and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Vellum – stamp butterfly using Versamark, gold emboss, color the BACK of vellum using Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo and Calypso Coral markers, cut out and add to card front
