Birthday bubbles

I haven't used this bubble border in a while and as I started to make this card it made me think that stampers may have been ahead of the wave - this is definitely something that's relaxing to colour in and most stampers were doing that long before the popularity of "adult" colouring books!

This is very simple - just stamped on white and coloured with blue/green Copics with the corner cut off along the line of the wave and mounted on a black card base. I did add some clear Wink of Stella over some of the bubbles for a touch of glitz.

I chose the sentiment stamp as I think the crisp, straight lines of the font are a great complement to the fluid lines of the border image.

Although I made this for a female friend's birthday, I think you could easily use this sort of design for a masculine card, too.

Lovely. I love all the wavy patterns and bubbly in-fills! You are right about the simple font, it is the perfect compliment for all the curves and curls
