RELAX - It's Your Day!!

I'm so excited to officially post my first card since returning as a design team member for The Stamping Boutique!!  I'm really lucky to be joining such a great, talented group of ladies!  My official introduction should be posted over at The Stamping Boutique Challenge Blog today too so be sure to check it out!
This TSB digital image is "Princess Jennifer Latte Bubble Bath" and I coloured her with Prismacolour pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits.  I love the Princess Jennifer Latte images and the newest one "Princess Jennifer Latte Heartbreaker" is perfect for Valentines!  I added Polar White Flower soft because I wanted to make it look like real bubbles and I really love the effect.  I took a close-up picture as well:
To be perfectly honest FLOWER SOFT scares me because I've only used it once before but I love how it looks like real bubbles!  I typed up the sentiment on my computer and cut out and mounted using nesties.  I embossed the cardstock with a cuttlebug embossing folder, added a punched border, ribbon, and brads & that's it!  I think it will be a perfect card to hold a gift card for a spa or something like that as a birthday gift.
