I`m forever blowing bubbles.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I am off to work shortly and then later my mum and stepdad are coming around to chop back some of my shrubs in the garden as I am having a new wall and fencing (courtesy of the building plot next door as its their boundary side and the wall is one they damaged at the front so they have to do that too) so they need to be chopped off the old ones.
Here is my card for today which I am entering into the following challenges:
1.Penny Black and More Challenge - July Challenge - Dies and Punches
2.Top Tip Tuesday Challenge - Challenge 105 - Hexagons/and or circles
3.Oldie But A Goodie Challenge - In the garden (old are the dies used and the distress ink and ribbons)
4.Little Miss Muffet Challenge - Challenge 65 - Nursery Rhymes (I`m forever blowing bubbles)
 
Products used are:
Cream pearl card
Gorjuss Girls papers - Neutrals
Ribbons
Distress tool
Distress ink - Frayed burlap
Go create circle and scallop circle dies
Spellbinders circle and scallop circle dies
Inkylicious stamp - Blowing Bubbles stamped with cocoa memento ink

Close up of the image.

And a sideways view.
Thanks so much for popping by, means a lot :D
Hugs Nic.xx

Nic, this is sooo BEAUTIFUL. I love coming by to see your cards. You do the most interesting things and this sketch is wonderful. I studied it to see if I thought I could do it and I had to decide that I probably couldn't. Looks like some engineering is involved. I love it, and your image, colors, etc. are gorgeous. You should enter it in the Patties Creations Monotone challenge going on right now - it would be perfect. Hugz!
