Good morning, I hope everyone is well and enjoying the new week. We have a new challenge for you at Bearly Mine Designs, this time it's everyone's favourite 'Anything Goes'. This is my card featuring the fab Saturated Canary image 'Bubbles'.

We are sponsored this week by the talented Krista from Saturated Canary

I love these images but I rarely use them because I find the hair a bit daunting.  I started following the sketch over at CLP but stopped half way through because I just couldn't make it work for me.  The papers are both from one of the Bearly Mine Designs Designer Extreme CD's, I'm sorry I don't know which one because I just loaded them all onto my laptop and grouped them by colour.

I punched the edges of the centre panel with my FrisKars edge punch, attached two LOTV sentiment tags with a small white flower brad and glazed the bubbles.  The only other embellishment is a small glittered flower with a gem in the centre - I spent about and hour trying to find some other embellishments, but nothing seemed to look right, so I just kept it simple.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front:

I know what you mean about the hair being daunting but you've achieved a wonderful shine to it - definitely worthy of a Loreal advert! Really pretty papers as always - you have an eye for perfect card coordination!
