Ooh La La

This was for this week's Sketch Challenge on SCS, to make a "kick-stand" card. This is the first time I've made one of these cards! Kirsten DuBosque or KED came up with this cool kind of card. It adds a different flair which I love! I decided to get out my Ginger Blossom paper from the new Spring-Summer Collection. I just LOVE this paper. The image is by Rubber Romance, another favorite of mine. I'm not sure how well you can see in the picture, but the bathtub is on dimensionals and the bubbles all have Icicle Stickles on them. It's nice and sparkly in real life. . .you can almost smell the Calgon! LOL The sentiment is from the My Favorite Things Meet Me at the Cafe set. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Babs (Rubber Romance), sentiment (My Favorite Things); Paper- Ginger Blossom DS, Whisper White (SU); Ink- Bordering Blue, Really Rust, Basic Black (SU); Accessories- double stitched grosgrain in River Rock, Icicle Stickles, dimensionals, blender pen.

You're so funny! Thank you for BOOSTING my ego with the age comment on my blog. I guess the photoshop editing to remove wrinkles is working!!! :) You are so good. I never would have had the creativity to put the bathtub with the ginger blossoms. It turned out FAB. This is one of my favorites. :) Julie
