Guest Designing at The Challenge Week Three

Good morning all. Hope you had a great weekend, mine was just wonderful. Even though it was cold on Saturday, the sun was shining making these January days bearable. It's my third Monday in a row Guest Designing over at The Challenge. How nice of them to invite me, and how fun to be a part of this challenge. Thank you so much for having me! You are the best!! Last week's challenge was a beautiful color challenge. This week we have this fantastic photo inspiration challenge! Check this out:

Normally, I'd be intimidated by all the prettiness in this photo, but not this time. I channeled my inner girly-girl and got right down to business. So much one could do with this much inspiration. I may have to see if I can come up with another card! You will play along, won't you? Good!


I don't think I've ever, in my whole life, ever put this many layers on one card. I've stepped out of my comfort zone completely for this card. And I'm kind of proud that I can kind of, sort of, do this. I wish you could see the colors in real life. Very prettily peachy-pink, with a smidgen of lavender and green. Not sure if I can tell you everything I used, so I won't even try. However, if there's a certain element you'd like to know more about, then shoot me an email and I'll try to get back to you on that. Okay folks, put your thinking caps on, and make a little something. Then join me over at The Challenge. I promise, no....I pinky promise to come and see what you've made! Happy dances everyone.
