Raise The Bar first DT Post URL Challenge and Prairie Fairy Reminder!


I am so excited to have joined the Raise The Bar challenge blog Design Team! The challenge this week is "U R Looking Good ( url) .. and it's to create a project using your blog as inspiration! You can use colors, themes, whatever inspires you from your blog.

My blog currently has pinks, red, green and flowers on it, and I used those for my card. I can't wait to see what you can come up with using your blog as inspiration!

Details:
image colored with copics
Wild Orchid Flowers
MS lace doily punch
SU cardstock
Scenic Route and American Crafts paper
Nesties
White Lace stickles on "pearls"
misc adhesive pearls
glossy accents on the eye glasses

I used this adorable Prairie Fairy image called "pretty Gillian" and speaking of Prairie Fairy, remember we have moved from a weekly challenge to a fortnightly challenge. So that means from today you have another week to get your entries in for that and the theme is Pearls and Lace.

Challenges:
Kaboodles Doodles- 2 paper, 2 cs, flowers and/or lace
Wild Orchid Crafts- make it sparkle - stickles
ooh la la crafts- Elegant Ladies
Simon Says Stamp- pearls and lace

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
