Whimsical Wednesdays - the Diedrich Dare Week 17

Hi everyone - greetings from the COLD midwest. I'm ready for spring! (Guess I'll have to wait though...) But these bright colors are fun anyway...this make-up kit is our source of inspiration this week. Fun idea, Madelynn! Here is my card. Kaite Cotton, over at http://www.papermakeup.com/ has generously donated the digital images for our challenge this week, (Thanks Katie!) so we incorporated the bright fun colors of this make-up kit with the wonderful digital images...and Waa Laa...instant card! Also, starting this year we have sponsers and prizes the first week of each month. The sponser for this month is Katie Cotton over at www.Papermakeup.com. Head on over to the the Whimsical Wednesdays blog to find out all the details, and to play along. You can link your card on Mr. Linky there at Whimsical Wednesdays blog, so we'll know where to find your card.

I've had fun with the Easel Cards the past couple months - as you can tell. I used one of the new "In Colors" from Stampin' Up! - Melon Mambo. And I've also learned firsthand that using blender pens and watercolor pencils on images printed on my printer isn't a good idea - it blends all together when I color it. (UGH!) Also, you can't tell by this picture, but the cute little fairy has Dazzling Diamonds glitter on her wings so she's nice and sparkly in real life.

Have a fabulous week and keep warm! Hugs, Darla
