Bubbling Birthday Wishes - ISB Challenge 26

Wonderful Sunday everyone! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend so far. We have fabulous weather and I can't wait to go outside and enjoy the Sunday by the pool ;-) 
It's time for another fortnightly ISB -Challenge. This time we have an inspiring sketch for you created by our wonderful talented Marina.

When I first saw the sketch I knew instantly what image I would like to use with it: 'Bubbling Tilda' from Magnolias Fairy Tale release. I got mine from Summer's store Roses on Paper . There is also a sale going on right now at Roses on Paper: 25% off most items! Go and check it out!

I colored Tilda with my Distress Ink Pads and she was stamped onto 140 lb watercolor paper with Archival Ink. I decided to do my card in a vintage distressed style look and also added lots of glitter. My DP is from Crafty Secrets 'Heartwarming Vintage Collection - classic' and CS is Bazzill. I added Crystal Glaze to the bubbles (also the big one Tilda is standing on) and gave her dress some extra bling using Twinkling H2O's Iridescent Gold after coloring it with distress inks. The flowers are from Magnolia, Prima and Whimsy Stamps. The sentiment is WOJ. My papers where distressed using a distressing tool and Distress Inks (Walnut Stain & Antique Linen).

As a reminder you do not have to use a certain stamp company anymore to participate in our ISB challenges.
As long as it is 'cute'.

Here are some more close ups:
