Spice up your life with colour girls - Quirky reminder

 Well Doris wants to see our "inner girls" in the current challenge that runs until Saturday. Our sponsor is the lovely Regina of The Cutting Cafe, and she provided the team with files of images to use, and I was lucky enough to win 6 months worth of every new release so I have used one of my files as well.
Rose is here again, simply because I like her and had her printed already. This time I coloured her dress with Promakers, and the rest of her too. I mounted her on a panel of lime green, on of my favourite colours, and teamed it with red - and pink. I found some sparkly brads to use on the green panel. The bright background is from You Colour my World, and the flowers and sentiment are from All About Girls. I added a big brad to the big flower, covered it in stickles glue, and added some lime green Stickles to the red and green flowers. All this mounted on a scalloped square, and this is an 8"x8" card blank so I used a Grand Nestability to cut the square. Finally I added some lime green polka dot ribbon.

This is McKenzie, wearing a dress which is cut from a panel from You Colour my World. She is coloured with Promarkers. In the background arranged so it looks like she is wearing the party hat, is a sentiment from All About Girls. the tall thin card blank is inked round the edges in pink, and I added polka dot ribbon and some teeny tiny buttons to match the colours.
