Let's Think Bright And Breezy

Are you tired of the bad weather? Are you just dying for anything Bright, and Breezy? Well this week over at Pile It On that is what we all decided we wanted to see. So the Challenge This week is to make a project that is Bright and Breezy. If you hop on over to the Pile It On Blog you can see all the wonderful designs that the Design Team came up with for you. And this week our Wonderful Sponsor is Meljens Designs and Whimsical Stamps. Look what I got to play with. These are just two of the many adorable images you can find over there and who knows come Play along with Pile It on this week and you have a chance to win some Meljens Images for yourself. You can find all the details on the Pile It On Blog.
For my card today I used these two images that I merged together and then I cut them out using the inner circle of my Nestables Crown Circles dies and then I colored that with my Copics. I printed the image onto Colorbok white texture cardstock (I have been using this paper a lot lately) and layered that onto two layers of the Crown Circles cut from the new Basic Grey DS papers called Curio.   The background papers are from the SU Sell-A-Bration digital elements cd that I got yesterday.

Here is a close up so you can see the texture paper better. I had a friend of mine try it yesterday and she was on her way to WallMart when she left my house. The pink glitter border is made using double sided tape and MS glitter. So quick and easy and Bright.

The sketch I used today is by Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
 I love their sketches.
