A little boo boo!!!! Just like bubbles happen, so does life

I made a little error with premature posting!!! Anyway, it's been brought to my attention that I was a little ahead of the game with my challenge card this morning!!! So, if you would like to see the Real OCC Challenge, please head over to the link on my sidebar to OCC and Play along! I'll see if I can get to posting something a little later this afternoon! But here's a little card for you today!!!!!

I chose this sweet Sea Turtle from Bubbles, available at  Our Craft Lounge  as my main focal point. I coloured the image with Copic Markers and then sponged Bashful Blue ink to the inside of the water image and some bordering blue for a deeper colour to the edges of the white panel. I actuallhy mixed companies for the DP, which is usually something that I don't do, but I liked the contrast between the two patterns. The larger pattern is Organic Snowdrop from BoBunny Press, the Stripe from the K&Co. Daydreams. I used Night of Navy and Bliss blue Cardstock.

I dug out the eyelets and dusted them off for this card to keep with the circular theme and used a Prima Flower with a Dew Drop Centre to finish it off! 

Hope you enjoy your weekend! It looks like the weather is supposed to be finally good here, so I am hoping to get a little sun. If I'm lucky, I go from Transparent to white with a moderate amount of sun and it is nice to have a wee bit of colour!

Happy Stamping!
