A new favorite card?

I am SO happy with how this card turned out! I used one of the precut cards that I purchased at the scrapbook expo a few weeks ago. But if you have the nestabilities you could probably make a similar card yourself.



I started by just stamping the bathtub image (Stampin' Up) near the center of the white circle. I paper pieced the towel on her head. Colored the image in with copic markers. Added a little stickles (glitter glue) to the bubbles. Once the image was finished it looked like it was just floating in the middle of the card. It needed a foundation of some sort. What better than a bath rug? So I stamped my image again on a post it note, cut out the bottom of the bathtub and put it on top of my colored image as a mask (didn't want to get pink ink on it after all that effort). Next I inked up the solid oval stamp (Amuse) in pink ink and stamped it over the feet of the tub.



Then I wanted a greeting of some sort. I picked through my greetings and didn't find anything I liked. I finally decided on just a simple one word stamp "Fabulous" (Clear Dollar Stamps). It is a polymer/acrylic stamp so I was able to curve it just a little bit on my block so it fit the curvature of the circle. Then I stamped it repeatedly - leaving a little space in between each word. The last thing was tying just a bit of ribbon at the top. This served a visual purpose as well...it hid the 'flat' portion of my circle card.

What do YOU think? I'm always amazed when I come up with a girly card that I like...because I am NOT a frilly/girly kind of gal! :-)
