It's a beautiful day for a challenge!!

The second official challenge for the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge Team starts NOW!!  :) The challenge this week is to use red or pink and bling.  Perfect for the scraps you may have lying around  from creating all those Valentine Love notes :) 
Before I show you my card I have to fess up.  I read the challenge wrong.  I didn't realize it said AND bling so I'm just gonna pretend that my buttons shimmer and shine- you see it don't you!!
I used one of my new favorite EVER sets called "You Will Find Refuge" I think the chickadee that comes with this set it FABULOUS!  sooo fun to color with Copics.  I stamped him with Momento ink onto Couture Cardstocks Detail Blending Paper and colored him in with Copics.  I cut him out with Spellbinder Nestabilities Labels One
For more great red or pink AND bling inspiration, be sure to check out the rest of the Challenge Team!
