I'm a Girly Girl Who's Crazy 4 Challenges!

How about that for a blog post title? It will make sense, I promise. I made today's card for the challenge over at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. It's a great new challenge blog with some fantastic ladies on the design team including my friend Frances (Stampowl). Be sure to check it out- it's fun and they have sponsors!
This week's challenge is a sketch challenge and it is a great layout for a card! I pulled out some Rubber Romance stamps that I have been wanting to get inky for a couple weeks now. This is Babs (ATC size) soaking in a bubble bath. I love this stamp. It might be because I am a Girly Girl at heart who doesn't have time for indulgences like bubble baths very often anymore. I paper-pieced the tub with the same patterned paper I used on the base of the card (see below) and then colored the rest of the image in with Prismacolor Pencils (love those!) Then I accented some of the bubbles, the scallops and dotted my eyes with pearls. You can't be a Girly Girl without some bling, right? Stamps: Rubber Romance Babs
Ink: Brown Stazon; Close To Cocoa
Paper: Chocolate and pink CS; PTI White; Basic Grey Porcelain PP
Accessories: Pearl stickers by Mark Richards, Oval and Circle Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Border Punch and Chocolate Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by today- I ALWAYS appreciate it!

I have that stamp (in the larger size) and never would have thought that the tub would look good paper-pieced, but OMG! This is gorgeous! I love that effect! Fabulous card! Now off to check out the challenge blog... smiles!
