Bubble Over for Inspire. Create. Challenges

And it's time again for another challenge with Inspire. Create. Challenges.
We really hope you are finding these challenges a great push off point for creating something each fortnight, I love a good challenge and often when I have "lost my mojo" I turn to a challenge to just get me started. We'd love if you gave it a go too.
OK, so for week #18 we have a theme challenge...
Now, I'll be 100% honest (as always) and say I was not too sure what to make with this theme. I was thinking about it while I was at work the other evening and when I got home I remembered I had used this set during the day for a commission and it was a complete lightbulb moment and well,  it all just came together really easily after that! I'm super pleased with the retro, beer garden feel of this card!
I used Daffodil Delight and a little of the the new colour Grapefruit Grove (available now in the "Share What You Love" early release) to create this starburst effect...
I added wink of stella to the bottles at the very end of making this card, after sponging and stamping bubbles on them already. But, again being totally honest, I would probably not do this if I made this card again. It looked better before *-* although I don't think it looks so bad that I had to remake it.
Please also note that this Bottles and Bubbles is carrying over into the new catalogue (yay) but not as a bundle. So, if you'd like to take advantage of the extra 10% off (making it just £36 for both the stamps and dies) then please order before the end of May.
I used some of my champagne foil paper to make the bottle tops, both on the bottles and at the bottom of the card.
So, if you'd like some more "sunshine" inspiration then please do head over to the ICC blog HERE and see what creative ideas the other DT members have to share.
We hope you have a go at this challenge and share your makes with us on the blog :-)
Thanks for looking here today!

  1. Your starburst is perfect for a 'Sunshine' theme, Sarah-Jane. The Daffodil Delight & Grapefruit Grove are a great combo. D xox
