Ruff Day?

Happy Sunday! Is everyone hooked on the Olympics like I am? It is amazing what some of these athletes can do. I sit down for a minute to watch it and then find myself still watching it hours later.

I took my eyes off the Olympics this afternoon to color this image. I love Hershey in the tub. I used both glitter and crystal effects for the bubbles and the water. When I punched the bubbles out of the strip I decided they looked plain so I put crystal effects on those also to give the card a little more dimension.

The challenges my card meets are:

Sew Many - Sketch - I had a tough time with this sketch. I make square cards and had a tough time fitting everything on but I love the papers I used.

Crafty Cardmakers
- Digital - This is a digital Sew Many stamp and then I typed the saying from word.

Dare you to Digi - Punches - I love dots and bubbles so when I saw this punch last year I thought I would use it alot. It surprised me when I realized this was the first time I pulled it out. I filled the circles with crystal effects to make them look more bubbly.

Frosted Designs - Polka Dots and Plaid - I love these papers and I love both polka dots and plaids so I loved this challenge theme.

If the Shoe Fits -Mad for Plaid - I love this plaid paper and found I was hording it so I decided this was the time to use it.

Incy Wincy - Punch it out- Now that I have used this bubble punch I know I will be using it more!

Little Red Wagon - Ribbon - The saying looked lost on this card so I decided to weave ribbon through it to make it look like it fit better on the card.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you like my card. I love reading all your comments. Thanks to all who leave them.
