MMSC56 Emma With Bubbles


Greetings bloggers and welcome to another week of Midnight Madness. I was away on my family vacation last week, so I am a little behind. Playing catch up right now! This weeks card is made with an image from "Fred She Said" called Emma with Bubbles. Isn't she adorable. I am on Tracy's design team so I got this image from
her. Your can visit her store here. I am a big kid when it comes to bubbles-I just love to sit outside and blow bubbles. I have a bubble machine I put on at times and just let it go out in my back yard. Sometimes the bubbles drift over the top of my house fill the front lawn as well. So you know I just love this image.
For this card I used a new set of Martha Stewart PATP punch. I then added the pearls to the center design. Crystal Effects as used on the bubbles and it made them look so real. I also stickled Emma's dress. The rhinestones flowers actually match the paper perfectly, but for some reason have photographed a different color. I applied small pearls to the center of them.

This is the inside of my card with the envelope in the background. I cut out Emma to highlight the bottom portion of the card and cut the bubbles to look like they floated to the top...fun!!!

Here is the card with the envelope I created. I hope your have enjoyed viewing this creation and will go get your bubbles and play outside!!! Thanks for stopping by today. I think I am almost caught up from being away. Stayed tuned for more things coming up soon.
