Bubbles or Dragon Skin!

Happy Friday!

First, I'd like to give a very warm welcome to Val at Aquarius blog.  I hope you'll pop over to pay her a visit

It's time again to link up with Erika on her Snappy Crafts blog to share an "Oldie on Friday".

It doesn't need to be a card.  Any craft item you made a while ago. Link to Erika, leave her a comment and she'll visit you in return.

My card was made about four years ago with this stamp which I borrowed stamp from a friend.

When Wendy went off to live in Spain she sold off lots of her stuff.  Sadly I couldn't persuade her to sell this beauty.  I thought she needed a bow in her hair and of cause the bubbles cried out to be glittered.

I don't know what the stamp is but the sentiment is by Printworks and part of an old sentiment set.

The embossing folder is the same one I used for 'dragon skin' on my card on Monday.

Also I "like your style" :D and LOVE this embossing folder, so versatile, it gives a great texture and is just perfect for giving the idea of the bubbles!! The lovely girl in the bath is another beauty, and the touch of the bow is just perfect!

Lovely card, I can see why you loved that stamp. I would never have thought that it was the same embossing folder if you hadn't told me. Obviously a very versatile one! Have a good weekend, Cara x
