Pile It On Challenge #82 - Bright Colors

Hello again!

This is my second post of the day.  Please scroll down to view my MHK Designs release post.

I'm not sure if you've noticed, but I am sporting a cool new DT member logo.  As of this month, I joined the Pile It On design team.  I'm super excited to join this awesome group of crafty women, and I can't wait to share my projects with you.

The challenge this week is Bright Colors.  We are sponsored by Sweet Pea Stamps this week.  Each of us got to use one of their sweet images, and I love mine.   This weeks winner will receive 4 digi stamps of their choice.

Here is the card I created for this weeks challenge.

Isn't this little angle just darling?!  I really do love her.  As mentioned, the challenge this week is bright colors and I really wanted to have bright, cheerful colors on my card.  I LOVE how this background turned out.  I sponged on several colors of Distress Ink, using one of my new MFT stencils, and then I stamped over it in gray, with one of my flourish background stamps.  These colors are so gorgeous together, and who doesn't love a rainbow, right?  You can't tell from this photo, but her wings are extra sparkly, thanks to my Wink of Stella clear brush pen.  Here is a close up of her lovely wings.

Such a pretty card, in real life.  I intentionally left this card without a sentiment, because I wasn't sure how I wanted to use it just yet.  I will add it, when the time comes.  I hope the recipient enjoys receiving this card, as much as I enjoyed making it.  I am going to enter this for the following challenges.
