Bubble Queen Card - Craft for Life Campaign

This is an A6 sized card I've made for the Craft for Life campaign to support Cancer Research UK. I love the SU! Bubble Queen set, this was such a fun card to make!

I knew I wanted to use turquoise, pink and white together but I needed another colour and I decided that just a touch of black added a bit of pop. I've coloured the image with Copic markers and added some sparkle by sprinkling glitter on the bubbles. I've embossed the turquoise panel with the Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles folder - perfect for a bathtub Bubble Queen card!

I punched a small flower to add to the sentiment circle. I snipped the petals a little deeper, placed the flower on a moulding mat and spiralled an embossing tool in the centre which pops the petals up a bit. Then I added a nice pink girly jewel to the centre.

I also stamped and coloured an image for the envelope flap - love this gal with the cucumber slices on her eyes!
