Basic Grey want BRIGHT & BOLD

It is time again for a new Basic Grey challenge (I think someone is stealing my fime!!!)

This time we want you

Bright and Bold


As always, our wonderful sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering one lucky winner a fab $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Superstore, just think of the goodies you could treat yourself to with that !!
(Please note: This is a voucher code that entitles the winner to a $25 saving off their order in Simon Says Stamp, P+P charges will still apply unless the conditions are met to earn free P+P, please check here if you would like to see these conditions)

I found this very difficult - I am useless at using bright colours - I use the brightest one I could cope with are papers from Basic Greys Dasher which are actually Christmas paper.
My image is one from  Saturated Canary called yoyo and ooops what an idiot I have forgotten to colour her in her yoyo - derrrrrrrrrrrr!!! I shall but that right and colour the rest of them with  Copics . I love here dreadlocks although it was rather time consuming!!!
I did try to colour the details with 'BRIGHT & BOLD' but failed  - I decided the decided that white is bright and stuck with that. the leaves are from Cheery Lynn and the flower from Memory Box  Cherry Blossom and Fancy Blossoms.
I added a little cow and attached them with some small beads - supposedly resembling  dreadkocks - and added a small charm. 

Challenges  -  (If I find any ??)

I hope you all have a brilliant weekind
