Poke Berry Hair

Poke Berry Hair
Oh wow... another fun card... and it really didn't take me that long to complete... and there are 7 challenges associated with this card... I have a plan now so that I know what to do and when I can do it... takes a while.. but where there is a will there is ALWAYS a way...

Okay... I used papers from K and Company... they are so very rich and elegant.. (the yellow background paper has Glitter all around it... it is so nicely done too,) and I have a ton to use... so I am trying to use them up... I usually don't cut into the center of a piece of paper... but you know.. I wanted something  like these plant leaves... so I cut them out!!!!  When you want something go after it... YEAH!!!!

Okay... one more detail... this card is 5.5 x 8.5... a large card... but there is so much here... and I wanted to get it all onto a card... 

The stamped Angel is from Sweet Pea... and thank you so very Kimberly Hellams for getting me involved with these stamps... I love  these... and will be using a lot more of these in the coming months...

I used the Martha Stewart Butterfly Border and corner punch for the frame... and the flowers are by
Pretties by Bonnie  
Yes I drew them and painted them with my favorite paints... You guessed it... my Twinkling H20's... So is the Poke Berry Girl ... love them... and there is nothing like the glimmer they give..   The Vellum Butterfly was created with Spellbinder Butter and then run thru my Cuttlebug Swiss Dot folder... love it... my favorite butterfly... no what it is made of ... it looks GREAT!!!!  All the time.

Okay... now I mentioned that I created this card for 7 challenges...
so here they are...

#1.  Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #70

#2.  Color Throw Down #109

#3.  Stamping Vacation   Use three things from a tag, string, vellum, frame, brad, black paper, eyelet and anything yellow... sooooooo  I used Vellum, Frame, Brad (gold dragonfly)  Anything Yellow (paper and the butterfly)

#4. Flutterby Wednesday #121  to use PINK  and also anything with wings... I have 5 areas with wings...

#5.  Reasonable Ribbon  To use a flower and also ribbon, lace or trim...

#6.  Incy Wincy... to use a bow and button... okay... I stretched the bow... but a bow is somthing with loops.. and I have loops... and the button... now where could that be... it is in the center of the pink flower... it is about 1/8th of an inch.. .the kind you have to use tweezers to get it into place...

#7...  Of course... Pile it on #35... to pile it on with as many challenges as you can...
I am sure that there are other challenges  that this card applies for... but  it will take me about 2 hours to post all these ... so I have to watch myself... time on dial up is not something I love... believe me...

To connect to these challenges, you can go to the bottom of my blog and there is a place to click and it will take you directly to the site of the challenge... Join in and have fun...  The more the merrier... 

Hope that you have a super nice day... and that you enjoy yourself...
Thanks for stopping by today... and hope to see you again soon...
Love, Light and Peace.. Bonnie
