Sketch Saturday week 46

Oh my it's Saturday again!! You must think I did nothing at all the past week but that's so not true :). My baby girl Amy turned 1 last Tuesday so that took a lot of my crafting time and I have been very busy with the upcoming Pink Cat Studio Sneak Peeks. So please don't think I've been lazy :). It is Saturday again as I said so that means I do have a card to show you today. Because as you all should know by now... Saturday means Sketch Saturday on this blog :).

Here is the sketch Jo came up with for this week: I think it's so perfect!! I absolutely loved working with it! I decided to make a card for my mum who's birthday it will be tomorrow. I can't be with her on her birthday but in this card I will tell her that I'm taking her away for a day at a beautyfarm soon to spend some quality time together. Here is my card:
The sentiment reads Verrassing which means Surprise in Dutch. These very cute images are from All That Scraps from the My Rubber Ducky Stamp Set. All the papers, ribbons, flowers and other embellies are from the Card-Art Card Kit from March except for the waterdrops in the left corner which are from stash. The papers are Dream Street Papers.
This is the inside of my card:

And this is a close up from the image. I hope this shows the layers I've added to this image. There are a whole lot of foam cubes on this card :).

And because I don't think the image before shows the glitter and shine I've added here is another close up in different light. I hope you can see both the bubbles and foam are coloured with a little bit of blue and then redone with a spica pen. After that I have added stickles to the foam and Paper Glaze to the bubbles. The spica/paper glaze effect is very cool in real life, the bubbles are shiny and sparkly at the same time.

Well that's it for me today. Please don't forget to check out the blogs of my very talented co-design team members and our guest designer for the past and this week Brocelaine. Also this week is sponsored by Clare Chanter, who owns Thread-Bare, a website selling craft goodies and a lovely selection of handmade cards and gifts. Clare is offering a beautiful Papermania stamp and absolutely stunning Dovecraft charm brads so be sure to check out the Sketch Saturday blog for further details.
Have fun creating everybody!!
