DeLovely is DeBright!

A lake carries you into recesses of feeling otherwise impenetrable. -William Wordsworth
WOW...Cosmo Cricket DeLovely, it is Lovely, but it is also BRIGHT! :) I am not normally a Bright color kinda gal, but in the interest of Stretching my boundaries, going outside my safe zone and growing my creative talents I grabbed it put on your sunglasses and get ready for the Brightness!
I used a LOT of the Dirty Dozen "Dare to Get Dirty" Challenges on this card (I will list them at the bottom of this post) including a sketch by rainy, I was tempted to flip the sketch, but I decided to go with it as it was and I like how it turned out, I was afraid it was going to be a little top heavy, but I think the flowers along the bottom evened it out. I Paper Pieced the swimsuit Finna is wearing and colored the rest of the image with Copics. See that Gorgeously wide twill ribbon??? That came off a T-Shirt I bought that was wrapped and tied up. I took it off and ironed it months ago and decided to pull it out for this card and now it fits for this week's Blogger's Challenge "Recycle It!" :)
