Bugaboo Bright Colors and Flowersoft Challenge Entry

Hi All,

Just a really quick note to show my entry for the Bugaboo Challenge. I am entering the Bright Colors and Flowersoft challenge. I have had my Flowersoft since it first came out and at that time they were pastel colors, so its not as bright as I would have hoped, but it was fun to work with Flowersoft again. I paper-pieced the polka-dotted part of her gown and using Copics I colored both images. I then used baby blue Flowersoft to accent the outer flower and a soft peachy/orange color for the flower in her hair. I fussy-cut the girl and used a Spellbinder Nestability for the flower image and edged it slightly with Tumbled Glass distress ink. The lace is from Hero Arts and is self adhesive! LOVE IT!! The DP is from my scrap pile and I dont remember exactly where it came from. Sorry!

I really enjoyed creating and entering this challenge. If you would like a chance to play along, please stop over to the Bugaboo Challenge Blog or click HERE.
