For my creation Iv'e used a digi image called Bubble Cat from HERE 
coloured with Prismas & the bubbles have been glossed to give a 3D effect..
The 2 patt. DPs are from the digi pack "Slugs & Snails" & its been printed
onto white lightweight card..very versatile digi set..the top blue has been put
thro the CB e/bossing folder "Spots n Dots" dark blue card is Core`dinations..
Ive distressed the edges..well as I caught the larger blue circle it got a bit ragged
it was crying out to be distressed happy accident..LOL. blue strip across the
middle I used a MS punch.trying to keep the theme of Bubbles going...
the 3 small circles are dome stickers had them yonks..(years) stuck them
onto the printed DP & cut round, swirls are from a Marianne creatable die..
