Bubblegum, Bubbles, and Bling

Dorothy Adam thought she was being pretty sneaky for this week's team challenge on the Woodware UK blog. She requested bubblegum pink and bubbles. Yikes!! I really had to put my mojo cap on for this one...and I think I did really well with it.

For this card, I used Francoisé Read's soon-to-be-released 21st Birthday clear set, stamped on a bubblegum pink card, and on a piece of GCD Studios Cloisonné patterned paper. I love their papers...double-sided patterns, perfect weight, and gorgeous colors and prints. I cut out the patterned 21, removed part of the top, and punched holes for bubbles.

The Mark Richards' Crystal Clusters perfectly mimicked bubbles and added some necessary bling for a 21st birthday. I'm not sure if it's the same in the UK, but here in the States, a 21st birthday is a big occasion, as you are now legally allowed to drink alcoholic moderation...and not before getting behind the wheel of a car...or just before calling your ex-boyfriend...or your boss.

The card itself was punched (or punchy?) a few times to mimic more bubbles, and a few escaped to the inside of the card as well. So, what do you think? Did I follow the guidelines for the challenge? Let's go check the Woodware UK blog to see what bubbly creations the rest of the team came up with this week...

Remember, you can find these products at your local stamp store listed on the Woodware UK site. Keep a close watch to see when these new designs will hit the market!
