Guest Designing for The Challenge Week 2

To paraphrase the effervescent Darnell; we've whoosed around to another Monday. And I'm happy to report that life is good, and I am thankful. So many things to be thankful for, and one that I thought I'd share is, that I get to share a card as Guest Designer for The Challenge again this week! I'm delighted beyond belief! Thanks to Kim and Leslie and the rest of the DT for this wonderful opportunity. And check out the inspiration photo for this week's challenge; it's full of amazing colors, and I know you'll want to play along, right?! Right!!

Here's how these colors inspired me:



The scrap of my all-time favorite navy patterned paper (Theresa Collins for MME) was cut with a SC tag die. An NBUS Little B die for those laurels, and a (can you believe how nice they are) free "grateful" die that I got with my last TE order. A snippet of orange ribbon, and a random button. That's about it. You all have a good day, and don't forget to join me over at The Challenge!
