Inventory Challenge #21



Good morning everyone and a very happy Friday to all of you! Today, Danielle and I welcome you to our Inventory Challenge #21 "Spring Colors". This is a very special challenge because we are dedicating it to our very sweet and phenomenally talented friend, ELISE! She is about to undergo surgery and we thought this challenge was so
appropriate for her because spring is all about renewal. We wanted to do something special to raise her spirits and let her know that she will be in our thoughts and in our hearts. GOOD LUCK SWEET GIRL...LOVE YOU!!!!!
I decided to make a round easel card using a Magnolia background from last year's collection. The purple dp is from Fiskars and I used a MS border punch for the flower trim around the nestie. The purple flower was a gift from my dear friend, Jacque and the remainder was a gift from another sweet friend. Thank you so much!
Tilda was colored with copics.
I invite you to visit my dear friend and teammate, Danielle, and view her gorgeous creation and then head on over to our other teammates Charlene, Rene and Jean to view their awesome work.
Thank you so much for visiting and I really appreciate your comments. Hugs to All!
