Inspired by All the Little Things 50th Challenge Celebration

We are already to our 50th challenge! To celebrate each of us on the DT has invited a special guest to join us this week.  

AND we will each be choosing an Inspiring Standout 

Runner Up this week...then, as a team, we will choose

 ONE MAIN WINNER and that person will join our team

 for May as a Guest Designer for each May challenge!

My special guest is  KSENIJA of SWEET KOBYLKIN
I am always blown away by her elegant CAS style and Rich Vibrant colors in her work.

Here is my card for the Celebration:
 I heat embossed the Cake image from Concord and 9th in White EP and colored it with Ziggys. Then I stamped several leaves from Altenew's  Floral Shadow Stamp and added some details with Set A Artistic markers.

Here is a chart of the Ziggys that I used.  If you would like to have charts of your own, Google Zig Clean Color Chart Real on images and scroll down until you find it. print and color away:)) 

Our VERY special GUEST ARTIST this week is 

I find Diana's style to be as sharp and fresh as her Quick wit. She always makes me SMILE:))

We have each invited someone to join us this week who inspires us as card makers!
Check them out for more Inspiration!
