Lately my cards have been simple and clean, so now I wanted to bring the whole arsenal. Behold the result!

I love this set by TGF and I looked a good deal before I found someone who would ship to Sweden. I used it right away to make cards in which I enclosed a couple of tea bags and some chocolate to all my girls out there. Great happy mail during fall when it's dark and rainy, it was well appreciated. I'll think about doing it again this year...
Anyhow, I've got inspired by the TGFSC 28 sketch and I coloured the face and hair with promarkers and copics. For once I actually remember (meaning wrote down - LOL!) which colours I used.

Hair: E51, E53
Face: Ivory, E50, Blush, Dusky pink
Hairband: V000
Bathtub: Lindy stamp gang creme brulee cream
Legs of bathtub and frame of diecut: R000
Bubbles: Glossy accent

All the flowers are from I am roses and there are 2 flowers I've made myself of polymer clay using flexible molds from Kawaii. The flowers are coloured with LSG salt water taffy spray and magical, to add the same colour but still different intensity. I like the depth it made. There is also a skeleton leaf and some rose leaves coloured with LSG sea grass green, as they take the spray differently the looks of them also varies. Both of the sprays comes from LSG nantucket pearls set.

To top it of I made two stick pins I've added some pearls to and some prima bling of course.

The flowers are: R2-15, R5-15, R8-15, S3-310, ZQLO-151 and a small natural skeleton leaf.

For the boarder in background I used a punch from ek success and layered some pink trim I had in my stash. On top of that I glued some mini iridescent pearl trim also from my stash, so I don't remember where I got it from. For the rosette that was part of the sketch I used some pink satin ribbon, which I (after a lot of fiddling) managed to thread a heart on each end and tie a knot. I'm very please by the result as I never manage to tie a knot where both ends hangs down. Somehow one always keeps sticking up?!

My sentiment "me time" is stamped on paper with memento ink and I used a tim holtz framgent charm with some pink satin ribbon and bling on. The paper is from Bo Bunny Gabrielle collection and DCWV Mariposa paperpad and I distressed to edges good.
