Fall Pyrus Brigitta


Hello! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend b/c I did! I had a blast with my daughter and her friends on a Girls Inc. field trip Saturday (a Disney on Ice Princess wishes show) and yesterday we had a nice relaxing day... AND I got a chance to make a card.
I got this Basic Grey Pyrus dp in my happy mail from Die cuts r us and paired it with CC designs Fall Brigitta. I LOVE this pyrus dp but I will admit I had a hard time with the colors on it. Dont really know why I just did. I had so many markers out on my desk I couldnt begin to tell you what colors I used where..except for the hair. I do LOVEY how her hair turned out! Its a color combo from the wonderful Amys blog-yr21, yr12, yr15, and e99.
I used the Friday sketchers challenge for my layout. I added some sparkle to her wings for the Basic Grey sparkle challenge. This weeks Raise the Bar challenge is FALL. Flower, At least 2 ribbons, and Lots of Leaves. Finally this weeks Pile it on challenge is cute and charming and I think this image definetly fits that! 4 challenges! Woo hoo! Thats good for me!LOL! Im usually doing good to get in one but I do sooo miss playing in challenges so Im trying to get back to playing in them and 4 is a good number to start with. Now Im off to comment on all my blogging friends creations b/c yes I have been a slacker blogger friend again. Im hiding my face in shame over here!LOL! Have a good one!
ETA: Looks like I was late for the Pile it on challenge so it was just have to be 3 challenges.
