Southern Girls Challenge #37 - Magic and Mystery

Hello!!

This fortnights challenge over at Southern Girls is Magic and Mystery and we are being very generously sponsored by The Paper Shelter and XXX


I used this fabulous image from the Paper Shelter - love this guy blowing up his balloon bubbles :-D.  One of my resolutions this year is to actually use my papers, and these are some that I got last year by Bo Bunny, I think they are Peacock Lane, and I thought the bubbly looking background went well with this image, and of course I just had to add some glossy accents to the bubbles!


Of course I had to use the new Doily Die that I treated myself to the other day - it's by Cheery Lyn designs but I was a bit worried how it would cut as it's quite an intricate design, as it turned out it took a couple of passes rotating the image but went through just fine, phew, always a bit of a worry when you try a new brand on your die cutter!!

Anyway, hope you like my card

Please may I enter these challenges

Thanks for stopping by

I love this card Sue, the colour is fantastic. And that bow is amazing. I was meant to say to you when I sent you the flowers....Just in case you want to, the majority of my handmade flowers take colour really well, so the fabric ones take the likes of cosmic shimmers sprays etc and even distress re-inkers put in a spray bottle with water. And the Petaloops take sprays well and even promarkers too. In case you fancied adding a splash of colour to them rather than just the white and cream colours. Lee x
