Dottie's World Sunday Challenge....All things Bright and Beautiful...Happy Easter!!!

It's Sunday again, folks! That means time for Dottie's World Sunday challenge! This week our lovely and talented, Juliet, set the challenge and she has provided great inspiration but also lots of room for interpretation....
"All Things Bright a Beautiful
.....evoking thoughts of Spring and Easter I hope. This week's challenge is simply to make a project using 'bright and beautiful' colours and embellishments - of course featuring one of the Charmed downloads too. Lots of scope there then on this bright and beautiful morning!

For my card I used these Valentine's papers from Scenic Route called Loveland Line. They were my bright and beautiful jumping off point! I just love Scenic Route papers they are right up there with my first love....BasicGrey!!!!!
I printed Holly in the Garden from Charmed Cards & Crafts on Georgia Pacific paper and coloured her with my Copic Markers. I used my Metallic Rub-ons to make the blue background! I then roughed up the edges of the image and the red Bazzill Cardstock mat with my Tim Holtz distressing tool thingy!
I made the mistake of checking to see if there were any new Quickutz Digital Downloads available for my Silhouette and there was, yay!!! I just had to have the new Scalloped borders! I was so happy with this particular one. it looks just like the new Fiskars Apron Lace border punch and now I don't have to buy a big 'ol punch! The cool things is that it came in different sizes too. So, I cut a small one for the bottom and the large one is along the top!

Then I added the yummy frilly ribbon that I got at my LSS a while back and I decided to staple it on...nice and easy and added the cute green felt bunny from the dollar store and some Prima Flowers with a big MM brad!
I stamped my MFT sentiment on a Quickutz tag that I cut from a scrap of the pp. The tag has a little slit to run ribbon through but I decided to tuck that edge under my main image! I added some Stickles here and there for a little extra sparkle and I out linted the sentiment with my Sakura Stardust pen!
Well, there you have it! Another fun challenge awaits you, over at Dottie's World Blog!!! You should also take a trip to Charmed Cards and Crafts and see all the fab downloadable images Karen has for you!!!
Hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by and having a wee look!!!
