Makin' It Colourful at Card Crafter's Circle

We had  91 entries last challenge... awesome! Our challenge for you this week is really easy...  this week we want you to

We are excited to have a repeat sponsor (already!) the uber-fabulous... Bugaboo Stamps!  Our randomly drawn challenge winner will receive their choice of 7 Bugaboo images... what an awesome prize!

Have you had a chance to see the latest Bugaboo releases?  There aren't enough hours in the day to create with them all! Our Design Team has created some fabulous colour-filled creations to share with you, and to inspire you! Have a look!

Ingredients: Mint Pearl Cardbase; White Cardstock; Co-ordinating Decorative papers; Scalloped diecut trim; Stardust Glitter Pens; Decorative Chalks; Pink Pearls; Rhinestones (various colours)...
This week, I created with one of Bugaboo's Jacobean Birds..... wonderful!  I coloured the image background with chalks, and then the image itself with glitter pens.  I trimmed it to size.

I took the cardbase and trimmed the front of it - just enough to allow the scalloped diecut trim to show, as I wanted to place it inside the card.  After fixing the trim, I added clear rhinestones to it.  I matted the image with pink, and patterned green and pink layers, then fixed them to the front of the card (allowing enough green space around it as if it were centred).  To finish, I added pearls to the image corners, and coloured rhinestones as dictated by spots on the image itself.

This card is entered in the challenge at Charisma Cardz #52 Over the Rainbow... (12/1)

I hope you will join us at Card Crafter's Circle and Make It Colourful with us!  Thanks for peepin'!
