This image is similar to the Hopper in the wooden bach -  (called Bunny Bath) - I've always used that one before so it was time to christen this one.  I created my own background with with a Obsession Impression Cling Stamp Houndstooth stamp with  Bazzillcardstock in  Icy Mint.
In case you are wondering what the hell are those circles on the left hand side I thought I should explain.
I cut about 30 circles with of various sizes with Spellbinders Classic Circles - I used the Icy Mint and coloured vellum - the idea being bubbles - I think I can safely say it'a a failure - if I had more time I would have replaced them with some/anything else!!!
