Bright colours for kids

   For our challenge at send A Smile 4 Kids this time we would like you to use bright colours. Again we have three generous sponsers: Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet ($10 gift certificate), The Cutting Cafe' (3 sets of digis or cutting files) and Sassy Studios (4 digis).

   My first card uses the BB Kakes image 'garden me' from Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet.
   I matted pink spotty paper onto pink mirri and white card. I then attached a narrow floral border to the lower half of the card.
   I rounded the corners of the image which I had coloured using Promarkers and matted it onto red mirri card which I had cut out using a Spellbinders label one die. As a final touch I added Stickles to the top corners of the spectacles.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - anything goes
   Craft Your Passion - anything goes
   Incy Wincy Designs - spots and dots
   Glitter n Sparkle - anything goes
   Doodle Pantry - anything goes
   Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - furry friends
   Addicted to Stamps And More - make your mark
   Fantastic Tuesday - anything goes with the twist in the garden
   Digi Galore - summery/bright
   Bunny Zoe's Crafts - furry friends

   My second card made use of Flower treat cupcake PDF files from The Cutting Cafe'. No pieces were given to form the depth of the 'cupcake' but there is a video supplied on the web page and I was able to make suitable pieces. I used scraps of card to make the flower. I filled my 'cupcake' with beads as these would be less sticky than sweets. 

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Clear It Out - anything goes
   Word Art Wednesday - anything goes
   Crafthazelnuts Patterned Paper - anything goes
   Inspiration Destination - anything goes
   Creative Fingers - anythiny goes
