PND Challenge with Blowing Bubbles Avery

It's challenge time over at The Paper Nest Dolls :)  Have you joined in yet?  There are always fabulous prizes to be won, and this month is even better!  We are being sponsored by May Arts this month, so each of DT girls has used May Arts ribbon in our creations.  Not only that...the lucky winner will receive some lovely May Arts ribbon for themselves along with the usual from Christine Paperdolls!  Thank you May Arts for the fabulous ribbon to work with this month!

Isn't this just gorgeous?!

I chose to create a piece using Blowing Bubbles Avery for this month's challenge post:

I used paper from Cosmo Cricket's Tea for Two 6 x 6 pad, and I did NOT follow a sketch for this project.  Although I probably should have hahahaha.  Sometimes it's fun to just wing it ;)  I used May Arts ribbon along the top and bottom of the card (pink velvety ribbon with cotton cream lace) and I also cut apart some pink flower trim and included it as well in the flower grouping :)

I colored her using my Copics, Prismacolor Markers, and my Prismacolor Premiere Pencils in the following colors:

Hair:  PB201
PC1072, 1074, 1076
Skin:  Copics  E000
PC927, 939, 1029
Dress:  PB133
PC1029, 1017
Bubbles:  Copics R20, PB108
PC922, 924, 925, 1061, 10653

She is just so sweet and would make the perfect Valentine's card don't you think?  Speaking of Valentine's Day, I realized while making this card, that I don't have any Valentine's sentiment stamps 0_0  Not good.  Will definitely have to rectify that very soon lol.

You can find Blowing Bubbles Avery in The Paper Nest Dolls online shop in rubber stamp form, as well as many other sweet images to use for Valentine's Day or for any other special occasion.  And don't forget to come and join in the challenge this month for a special prize from May Arts!  The challenge always starts on the first Monday of every month, and is always Anything Goes!  How easy is that?!  Hope to see you there!
