DD #20 - Bling it out

It's celebration time over at Delicious Doodles - time to bling it out!  Apparently across the pond they are celebrating something called the Queen's Jubilee.  Now at the risk of sounding culturally stinted, I have to admit that I am not familiar with that one...  So, I went with "Bling it out" as my theme this week.  Pop on over to join in the fun with a chance to win some great images!

I had a blast with this image - coloring her with my Copcis.  I colored the edges as well, but then went back over it with my blender pen to bleed it out.  I love the way it turned out.  These papers are from a pack from DCWV, a total of four different patterned papers.  The one in the back had these great butterflies on it that I silloette cut out to pop off the card, accenting the fairy perfectly.  A lot of bling and a pretty ribbon finished it off nicely.  I just love it!

I will be entering this in the following challenges:
Paper Play Challenges - #21 - Summer lovin (in the garden)
Charisma Cardz Challenges - #20 - No flowers allowed (just lots of flutterbys)
Creative Card Crew - #11 - Demension (all of the butterflies are demensional, plus the image is popped off the background)
One Stitch At A Time - #114 - Anything goes (kinda self explanatory, don't you think?)
Creative Craft Challenges 2 - Distressing (all edges are inked and the frame is done with bleeding the ink, then stippling)

Gorgeous hun! Loving the purple.
Our Queen has been our Monarch now for 60 years, so that's her Diamond Anniversary. They call it a Jubilee here because everyone gets to party and celebrate, a day off work too (for some).
Hope that explains it for ya! xxx

I love it too. It's totally gorgeous.

Your coloring is freaking perfect. I love the image and the papers you used. I especially love the "fussy cut" popped-up butterflies.

I do believe I'm gonna pin this one.
