365 Cards - Challenge 133 *COTW*


The challenge - Imagine This: Bubbles. I thought about this challenge last night before bed, unsure at how I was going to approach it, and woke up knowing what I was going to do... I love when that happens. :) The result is one of the most personal and, I think, beautiful cards I've ever done:

The sentiment was created on the computer using my new favourite font (free download!) "Elastic Wrath"

Now, I must thank two people... the first is my daughter Chelsea, who is pictured on the card (I love you, kiddo!)

The second is a fellow blogger, Susan (One4Joy). Her creations showed me that you don't need to stick to the borders of the card... and with that freedom, I really made the bubble pop! I'm glad there are so many cardmakers who are willing to share their ideas and inspiration. They fuel my own...

I thought the inside of the card was kinda cute, too, so I took a picture for y'all:

Thanks for visiting my blog. Come back soon!

This is genius on so many levels--the b/w photo, ignoring the border, the glorious *pop* inside! Love it!

The inside of this card is too great! I mean, the outside is pretty awesome too, but the inside adds just the perfect touch!
