The inspiration came from the lovely, bubbly card Anita Bowden gave us for the Muse #134 challenge.
I love the interlocking bubbles embossed on Anita's card and the airy, bokeh feel of it and really wish I had that background stamp in my collection, but I don't. After playing with a few different ideas I was happiest with the watercolored panel made with the PTI World Map stamp which replaces the circles with a grid pattern.
I stayed with the blue, green and pink color palette, added a SSS die cut and stamped sentiment and replaced the thread nest with a trio of enamel dots.
This card is also being linked to the Wednesday Challenge Blog at Simon Says Stamp where the challenge this week is No Designer Paper.
I was distracted from finishing this post by a much better football afternoon (yeah Seahawks!) and the very cool solar eclipse this evening. Events like that make me kick myself for not getting my DSLR camera fixed or replaced.
Hope you had a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by,
