I'm forever Blowing Bubbles!

Good Morning all!
It's Sunday & time for the latest challenge at
The Crafty Pad!
This week's theme for,
Challenge #157 is The Letter B 
We'd like to see things beginning with B on your Project!
There's lots to chose from!
Here's my card

The ladies of the DT were given Lulu Blowing Bubbles to play with this week!
She's such a litttle darling & as soon as I saw her I began to sing the old song
 "I'm forever Blowing Bubbles"
That's where the inspiration for my card came from!
I used a Basic 5"x 5" square card blank for the base of my card.
I decided to use a patriotic colour scheme Red White & Blue

I coloured the image up with Promarkers &
gave Lulu Blonde hair, a Blue Dress & highlighted the Bubbles with
 a bit of bling in the form of Glamour Dust!

The Blowing Bubbles sentiment was inspired by the song & I 
added  some bling in the form of Red White & Blue gems!

The Buttterfly  Border had some added bling too!
I also scattered a few bows around!

I wanted to add a little charm to this card & what better than
a little bicycle! The little beauty has to get about somehow!
 The very British Union Jack Design Paper is my latest purchase 
from Southfields, sorry, I can't recall the name of the pack right now!
