Bubble Queen

In honor of my first official upload, I thought it would only be appropriate to use the very first stamp set that I purchased through Stampin Up. The set is called "Bubble Queen" and it was retired a few years ago.

I booked two afternoons of pampering at a local spa to celebrate the birthdays of my Mother-in-law, my best friend and my husband. The staff at the spa was so wonderful at accomodating our needs and most definately made us feel pampered.

I thought this set would be cute to make the staff a thank you card. Here are some details on the card. I colored in the stamped images with my Copic Sketch markers - G24, RV11, V04, E04, B21, V15, YG03, Y11, E21, Y08. On the cucumber eyes, I used clear stickles and crackle medium. All of the patterned paper was from my scrap bin and the ribbon was from the $1 bin at Michaels.
