Relaxing In The Tub

Doesn't this look like fun?  A day in a bubble bath.  This looks so relaxing.  There are so many kids in my house I don't think I will be able to do this for a long, long time.  

I made this card with a few challenges in mind.  Simon Says is having a sketch challenge and I just love sketches.  Craft Your Passion is use Kraft with ribbon.  Then Pile it on is kick back and relax.  I've been wanting to use this image since I got it but did not have anything to use it for till now.  

This image comes from Sassy Studio Designs.  It was a freebie on their Friday Freebie over at Paper Craft Planet.  They have a new freebie every Friday.  I colored her with Whisper Strokes and Stampin' Up markers.  Tim Holtz distress ink is added around the image.  I added some Glossy Accents to the water and a bit of Stickles by Ranger to sparkle up a few things.  The sketch is Simon Says.  

The papers are from Bazzill, The Paper Co., my Stash 'O Scraps and a bit of generics.  The ribbon is Darice.  Finally the sentiment comes from my daughter.  I chose greens because they are such a relaxing color.  

I am entering into the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion #119 - Kraft with lace/ribbon
Pile it on #29 - Kick back and relax
Papertake Weekly - All things girlie
