Bold and Bright Colors

Thursday means a new challenge over at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday. And a new month means new sponsors. For March we've got Nicecrane Designs and  Paper Temptress, and for a chance to win you need to enter a project. It's Anything Goes every week, with an optional twist. Using the twist will earn you a second entry in the draw, and this week it's "your favorite color". You would think it's an easy one, but for me it was too hard to choose between purple, yellow and orange, so I added a bit of all!
The image is a topper from Nicecrane, you can find it here. The DPs are various scraps, the Whimsy Stamps sentiment is heat embossed with yellow EP  and flowers are from Storyteller. Bling and metal frame from my stash, leaves made using a MB die. And the stitching is made using a metallic gold thread.

    This card is for these challenges:
    1) Storyteller - #11 Punch og/eller dies
    2) Top Tip Tuesday - #122 Use 3,5 or 7 things on your card (3 flowers, 5 DPs)
    3) Crafty Bloggers Network - Nature
    4) Come and Get It Challenges - Flowers Galore
    5) Pile It On - #9 Sweet/Soft or Bold/Bright
    6) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

    Gorgeous Pia and I love what you've done with Ignacio's image!! Beautiful work and you're not alone in narrowing it down to one. That's like saying.... Well,I can't really think of an example, but something really difficult that you shouldn't have to choose! LOL..... (sigh)
    Great job and have a terrific day.
