"Dottie's World" Guest DT Flower Pot Fairy Card + Challenges

Hope you are all having a great weekend! Thanks for spending part of it with me! ;D
This is the second card that I have done for my August guest DT spot with "Dottie's World". This challenge is... Monochrome – Set by Nicole.

“Hello Ladies!
My first hosted challenge...yikes-I'm kinda nervous!
I'd like to see monochromatic for your card....one color, any color...different shades and tones of the same color are totally fine.
The Charmed Download can be colored with as many colors as you'd like.

I used "Daisy" from "Charmed Cards" "Pixie Chicks #2 Collection". I painted her in flame colors. Don't you think she is HOT? LOL! I think the bright oranges contrast with the greens to really make her pop from the card.

I used Bazzill and some stash DP for this one. The green embellishments are understated so your attention goes to "Daisy". I tried something new with the image background. I doodled in some texture by moving my brush in a random circular motion. I was going for a subdued mossy feel. What do do you think? Did it add to the image or should I have left it white? I love input from my friends! Remember, you can click on any picture to enlarge for a better look at the detail work.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Paper Take Weekly -“Four Seasons” – Use colors that remind you of a season.
I used yellows, oranges, reds and greens that remind me of the hot days of summer.

Digital Tuesday Challenge #18 – Bling and a digital image!
I used lots of colors of Stickles and some dew drops for my bling and the image is a “Charmed Cards” download.

Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #10 - "Use a Digital Image"
I used a "Charmed Cards" digi.

My Time To Craft Challenge #72 – “Neglected or Forgotten Stash”
I used some DP that was buried in the bottom of my scrap drawer. I can’t even remember the maker….oooops! LOL!

Creative Inspirations Challenge #20 – “Doodling”
I doodled the image background in with a paintbrush.

Please remember to leave a comment before you go check out the other "Dottie's World" DT's cards. They are all awesome and you never know...they just might inspire you to join us in this week's challenge!

wow this is just stunning!! what an amazing image! I love the contrast of the bright orange with the sage green!

This is stunning True, the image really pops. I think the background looks great - it really suits the Pixie and adds to the card. I'm sure white would have looked great too, but this background gives the effect that the Pixie is in the woodland. Fantastic.
