SSC189 & Inkspirations Color Challenge

It's a beautiful sunny day here...but...oh so cold! 
I'm sitting in my sunroom and soaking up the promise of spring!
And this little card just feels like spring to me ~ 
and it flowed wonderfully with the layout challenge 

I took the layout challenge and flipped it on it's side ~ and I think this really came together nicely, although the picture really doesn't do it justice! I found these darling little purses in one of my many travels through blogland ~ Carrie Gaskin gets the credit for this creation! I knew I needed to CAS this one. Isn't that just adorable!

 And can you see who's peeking out of the inside of my card?

You guessed it! Tote-ally Tess, grabbing her own little purse!
I love that stamp set and have forgotten about it ~ so nice to pull this off my shelf and blow the dust off of it!

I'm really not sure what is up with my camera...hmmm...maybe it's the person behind the camera! So sorry for the bad shots, Cherry Cobbler has never looked so Real Red before! Well, thank you so much for stopping by  ~ off to my studio to get ready for my girls! I'm looking forward to an evening of friendships and creating! 
~ have a wonderful rest of your day ~
