Inventory Challenge #37




Good morning everyone.....gosh, I can't believe it's Friday already! Time is moving too fast....before you know it, snow will be flying again!
Danielle and I welcome you once again to our Inventory Challenge. The theme this week is "Adorable Bugs". What could be more adorable than Ladybug Tilda???? She is from the Raising the Ceiling Collection 2010. Papers are from BG "Hello Luscious" collection. I used the Magnolia heart border die and the MS corner/border die. Tilda is showcased on a Nellie Snellen die and colored with copics.
The ladybugs on the inside of the card are from the Stamp Pad.

Now I would like to invite you to visit my friends and teammates DANIELLE, RENE and CATHY-LYNN and view their gorgeous works of art.

Next week, we will be making a recipe card.

I am also entering this card in the Deep Ocean Challenge which requires "flowers" on the project.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and your continued support. I appreciate it immensely! Hugs, Christina

  4. Good Morning Christina, isn't Tilda an adorable bug? She won my heart, as I love ladybugs. Your card is totally ADORABLE. Love the lace all around the card, and the mostbeautiful heart-shape border. Your coloring of Tilda is delightful, love how you inserted a ribbon all around the die cut. Cheesecloth is a perfect embellishment and give softness to your layout; The beatiful DPs are a perfect choice for your image, the colors are just fabulous. Your layout is exquisite. I love the inside just as much, gorgeous layout for both pannels, and such a lovely sentiment. Wonderful work my friend, you rocked that challenge. Hugs.

  7. Good morning Christina. I just had to visit my friends at the inventory challenge before I take off with family! I have been visiting your blog this morning trying to catch up with cards I have missed and what strikes me the most right now is how diverse you are. You can change the mood of your cards at will. This card brought an instant smile to my face. It is a gorgeous creation but it is a FUN card as well. You sure do know how to create a focal point. Your card has so much depth to it, at first I thought it was an album. Love your art work.
