Bright challenge at Some Odd Girl

Hope you are all having a great Saturday evening, or Sunday morning depending on where you might be in this big world of ours! Today has been hot and muggy but I did manage to get some yardwork done this morning, shopping at Sams Club this afternoon and a card this evening so my day has been pretty productive.
I found this new (to me) digi and clear stamp site called Some Odd Girl and I just had to have this image. She is called Beachy Tia and was a blast to color. Their challenge this time is Bright and Blinding and since I love me some bright colors this was right up my alley. I have used my Delovely papers, a Fiskars punch and a chipboard flower I painted and layered up. I also painted the edge of my image with some shimmerz paint to give it a little bling. Hope everyone gets to enjoy their weekend and please come back tomorrow for my Paper Sundaes post! I am also entering this into the following challenges.

My My...this has woken up my sleepy eyes this morning! I think bright and beautiful is what you do best are never pale, dull or boring unlike myself!
Fabulous colouring as always and those papers are bright!
Cute image, even with a little cankle action going on :)
