Feeling Bright and Bold?

Hi all - Happy Saturday!
This is my card for the new challenge at Basic Grey Challenges and we have a theme of Bright and Bold! Well, for someone who always seems to use a lot of colour, I'm not sure if I've fulfilled that brief!  Maybe striking!!  I've used this gorgeous Saturated Canary digi image and I didn't want to detract from her by using too much in the way of papers or other colours! 

A first for me, is the dotty effect around her using various shades of Viva pearl drops.  I've also used some stickles on her dress to give a bit of texture and sort of a tulle effect which I imagine her gorgeous gown to be made of!

The corner die is a JoyCraft die and the sparkly flower is Prima.  And of course, my Basic Grey papers are from the Indie Bloom Pack.
As always we're being sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp and as always, they're giving the lucky winner and $25 voucher to spend in their on-line store.


(Please note: This is a voucher code that entitles the winner to a $25 saving off their order in Simon Says Stamp, P+P charges will still apply unless the conditions are met to earn free P+P, please check here if you would like to see these conditions)


More inspiration can be found here from the rest of the awesome BG team. 

Have a great day whatever you're doing. Me, I'm going to catch up on my blogging whilst enjoying the Olympic Athletics on the TV - go team GB!!!!
