Lexi's Creations Challenge #14 DT Card

Well, it's Monday and were half-way through May already, can you believe it! It's also time for another cahallenge over at Lexi's and this week we have a sketch for you.
Here's the sketch

Here's my take on it

Personally, I have a really hard time with sketches, but I think this is a really good one and once I FINALLY got my papers picked it all went pretty smothly. So, this is 'Ellie blowing bubbles' and you can get her at Lexi's Doodles...isn't she cute!!!

Here's a closer look. I don't know why I colored her pink, but for some reason I really wanted to do a pink elephant and I think she turned out pretty good. Also, you can't really see it in the pic, but I've put some glossy accents glue on those bubbles and it really looks cool in person. I'll list the recipe below. The winner this week gets a 10Voucher to One Stop Card Crafts. Thanks for stopping and make sure you check out the rest of the DT cards, you won't want to miss them!
Have a great day!
