Somewhere Over the Rainbow - sort of :-)

Hi everyone.  How has you week gone?  We are on count down to going away on our vacation.  In another 10 days, we will be flying to Las Vegas and we are doing 18 days of road trip.  National Parks, Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, drive over the Rockies, Disney and last three days in Las Vegas to chill and enjoy the sights.

We are so looking forward to this fab trip, lots off the bucket list too.  I will have a few posts scheduled for whilst we are away, and I hope to maybe post a few pics, time permitting.

For today however, we are inspiration week at Polkadoodles for our challenge Somewhere Over the Rainbow.  I used a plethora of CD's for this card and love how it turned out.

So, this little lady is from the new Work and Play 4 Collection, and I just had to use her as Dorothy :-) The little teeny dog is actually cut off a digital stamp that is on the Dollie Daydream Girl Talk CD.  I have coloured these using Copics and Spectrum Noir.

Here are the colours I used.

The village scene on the card is a pre-coloured background from the fabulous CD collection, Double Sprinkles of Kraft.

I couldn't resist adding some gingham papers from the wonderful Cherryblossom Lane CD.  Used it on the inside too.

The blue birds and the hot air balloon are pre-coloured embellishments from the Bonbon Belles CD collection

I popped up one of the blue birds and "Dorothy" to add a little dimension to the card.  And there you have it, Dorothy is off to the State Fair ;-)

Here are the Collections I used on this card.

Double Sprinkle of Kraft CD Rom       ** Work & Play Collection 4             Dollie Daydream BONUS EDITION Girl Talk Collection      
                               Cherryblossom Lane CD Rom Collection       Bonbon Belles Double CD Collection

Did you know that some of these collections are now available as immediate downloads?!  You can check them out here :-)  Also check out the Digi Download section, for lots of goodies.

So now it's your turn to get creating and go on over and enter this current fortnights challenge.  You have until 12 noon GMT Friday 27 June to enter at Polkadoodles.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.

    Bluebirds fly
    And the dreams that you dream of
    Dreams really do come true
