It's Time To Celebrate!

Hi, hope you are enjoying your weekend and celebrating a wonderful Father's Day with those you love!  I have a card today featuring a digital image from Artbymiran.  She's so cute and I just love those bubbles!  Reminds me so much of my younger years....and that's ages ago!!  Who doesn't love summer and the thrill of trying to blow huge bubbles! 
The image was colored with Copics and layered on cardstock.  The designer paper is from the Simple Stories - I Am paper pad.  I used the Die-namics Upsy Daisies die for the flower, with a button from Doodlebug for the center.  The little bow is made using embroidery floss.  The butterflies are dies by Memory Box and they are called "Isabella and Pippi".  The doily is a die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  The little topper for the tag was created using a MS corner punch and I used the matching border punch on the bottom of the card.  It's hard to see in the picture but I used the clear glitter pen by Wink of Stella on the bubbles.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!
