It's Monday and time for a new featured bundle of the week.  This week I am going to be using the new Sending Smiles Bundle.  I love the flowers in this bundle!  Each day I am using a different background technique that I learned (or was reminded of) during the Spring Creativate Retreat last month.

Today's card uses the "BUBBLES" Technique.  Sharon Armstrong shared this technique during the retreat, and it was a new one for me.  But what a FUN technique?  Who doesn't love blowing bubbles?  I used the Splatters embossing folder for the Basic White panel behind the die cut sentiment as I thought it coordinated with "bubbles" very well.

This Bubble Technique would be great for a nautical card, but I thought it looked pretty as a background for my Coneflower -- or as I think of it, a droopy daisy.

I am definitely going to be sharing this Bubble Technique at one of my future monthly Technique Classes.  It was so much fun -- and so EASY!

My Coneflower was made with Melon Mambo and a Daffodil Delight center.  I'm not sure if these Coneflowers come in this color, but on paper I can make a flower any color I want, right?  

The color combination for this card is Orchid Oasis, Bermuda Bay, and Melon Mambo.  This was a suggested color combination on the New In-Color Color Coach, so I thought I would try it.  I'm still debating if I like it or not.  I've been looking at it for a couple of days now, and it is growing on me.  What do you think of this color combination?  Thumbs up, or thumbs down?

The Sending Smiles stamp set has 8 different sentiments that can be combined with the "Sending" die cut, so there is a sentiment to match almost any occasion.  The "Sending" on the card front is made with two die cuts.  The script one is shown here in white, and the background is shown in Bermuda Bay.  By using an adhesive sheet with the Basic White cardstock, it makes it extremely easy to attach the script to the background.

For the inside of the card, I chose the "smiles across the miles" sentiment.  I thought smiles went well with bubbles!

When I made my Bubbles background, I made it a little larger than the finished size.  This allowed me to have a leftover strip to use to decorate the inside of my card.  I also stamped a Coneflower on the inside and on the envelop.  

What do you think of my smiling bubbles?  I hope they made you smile, and I hope you will come back on Wednesday and Friday to see the other backgrounds I created using techniques I learned at the Spring Creativate Retreat.
