High Hopes Bubbles

I really like High Hope stamps but when we were putting in our latest HH order I fell in love with this little girl blowing bubbles!!!! She was the first stamp on my list. Luckily our order came right before we left for Vermont so I was thrilled that I would be making a card with her while I was up there.
I have come to realize that I am buying more and more cute stamps. Before I don't think I leaned toward these types of stamps but since I have started coloring almost everything with Copics they just seem like perfect match that I really like. I also used my cloud maker for the back round so that when I colored and Stickled the bubbles it would really show up. I painted the Stickles on with a paint brush so they would only be a thin coat and sparkle a little like the sun hitting them. I can see me using this stamp a lot, she was so much fun to color. I may even put some Flower Soft on the grass so that she looks like she is sitting in a field of wild flowers. I heated the ribbon so that it would curl up and give it a rippled look. I am always trying not to get in a rut by doing every card the same.

Stamps: High Hopes, Rubber Stamp Tapestry (I think)
Paper: SU Lavender Lace CS, DP SU
Ink: SU Bashful Blue, Lavender Lace, Copics
Accessories: MS Punch, Nesties, Cuttlebug Embossing folder, cloud maker, Stickles, Misc. brads and Michaels ribbon
I hope that you liked what I did with this card. Thanks for looking at my creations, it is very much appreciated.
Have a wonderful Mother's Day tomorrow!
Please stop by again soon,
