Dottie's World Challenge-Pastel or Bright

Hello and Happy Sunday!
This week at Dottie's World Adele is hosting and she wants us to either go pastel colors or bright colors....and of course use a Charmed Download.
I knew right away that I was going to use this new paper from My Mind's Eye! I LOVE this new paper collection-Quite Contrary.. the only thing that bugs me is that there are virtually no solid sheets....and I couldn't find ANY CS to match with it; which make layering really challenging. But besides that....I love this paper-it's so cute and fun-and so fresh and springy-exactly what I feel like right now. :o}

I used the "Windy Day" Charmed Download from the Sugar & Spice collection-and you can get it HERE. I colored the image in with my copics. The R20's match really nicely with this paper. I used a combination of R20/R22/R24 & R27 for the red/pink colors.
I used my fave glitter on the kite-Doodlebug Chunky Glitter, I also added a bit of star dust stickles to the kite ribbons.

Make sure you check out the Dottie's World Challenge blog to see what the other designer's created. Also, Adele is offering some blog candy that is tied in with this week's make sure you pop on over there to check it out....HERE

I think that's about it for now.
I'm going to Oklahoma to visit with my sister next week-for a week; so I'm hoping to get all my design work done and my blog posts scheduled so I don't have to miss any challenges.

Happy Stamping!
