Inventory challenge time!

It's time for another challenge and this week it's one of my favorites: teal and brown!  I LOVE this color combo and really should use it more often because, when I do, I just love the outcome.  Case in point, this card.  Not to blow my own horn (lol!) but I really like how this one turned out!








Can you tell I really like it?  I took about 40 pictures.  My husband was behind me mocking me, pretending he was Austin Powers, "Yay baby, give me more...give me your 'Grrrr' face baby, yay!"  He's so annoying!  ;D

Please stop by and see the fabulous work of:

Danielle
Christina
Cathy Lynn
Kathy
Nadine

For the following challenges:
Wild Orchid (anything goes)
ATS (blue, brown and tan)
Crop Stop (vintage, distressed, shabby chic...I spent forever distressing the background Tilda is against...it was originally stark white)

Happy Friday and thank you so much for stopping by!!!

Tell you Rene, you have something to blow your horn about. Look at those pleats. I remember you struggling about that... and look at the result now! This is just beautiful.
Your layout is very cute, and yes, this color combo is fun to work with, I love it also.

LOL...great post Rene! I was awe struck by your beautiful card, but now all I can see in my head are Austin Power's goofy teeth!
You knocked this one out of the ballpark too.
Have a great weekend.
