Card Inspiration Challenge

Hello sweeties! I hope everyone had a great Valentine's day!

My husband and I don't exchange gifts so I was surprised to receive from him two frames (one with a pic of us and one with a pic of the girls), a box of Fannie Mae Pixies (I quickly figured out they were 3 points each on the points plus system) and two bouquets of flowers. He told me now they would fill up my vase better. Besides the yelling and tantrums from Frances that have become our usual routine now I would say it was a pretty good night :)

This weekend I found out that my card was chosen for the member appreciation challenge at My Scrapbook Nook. Yay!!! I don't think that I mentioned that I was chosen as a guest designer during their last design team call yet. I am super excited to be a guest dt member because their kits are the BEST! Not only was my card the inspiration, but the guest dt'ers were asked to create examples. So I was able to create an example card too.

Here is the card that was chosen. I created this for Nikki Sivils using the "My Friend Birdie" line a few months ago.

And herer is my  lift on it. I used the February Nook kit and this was my very first time using Webster's Pages. The paper is so pretty I almost had a panic attack cutting it! Everything was from the Feb. kit except the ribbon and jewels.

You can play along with this challege and see the rest of the DT's cards on the message board. I would love to see your take on the inspiration card.

Thanks for stopping by!!
