7 Kids College Fund Wednesday -

Hello and Happy Wednesday to all of you!  We've made it through half the week and before we know it the weekend will be here.  Our beautiful warm and sunny weather from last week has disappeared and we are back to brisk, windy March weather.  The weather vacation was nice but now it's back to reality for all of us in the NorthEast.

Last week's weather was really just the most perfect of inspirations for our new challenge at 7 Kids College Fund.  This time around we are looking for your spring inspired projects.  Our challenge is called "Shades of Spring" and with all the trees and flowers in bloom I was in the perfect mood to create a spring inspired project.  Of course, let's hope that our short week of warmth and spring growth doesn't get damaged by our now much cooler weather.  That would just be terrible and I don't think anyone needs anymore bad weather issues affecting their lives and livelihood.

For my project I used 2 Magnolia images, Beautiful Tilda and Edwin with Butterfly.  I love butterflies and these two images are among my Magnolia favorites.  I decided to make a tri-fold card to add a little more dimension to my project and for even more dimension added a window to the front flap.

Materials I Used on this Project:
Copic Markers - YG25, YG23, YG21, CB, RV25, RV23, RV10. B26, B24, B21
Pearls flourished border
Recollections Glitter Embellishments

Here's a close up of these two Magnolia cuties.

Now it's your turn, we can't wait to see what you create!  Stop by the challenge blog, get inspired by our fabulous DT and then it's your turn to enter our challenge!

Hoping you are having the most happiest of Wednesdays!
So glad you could take the time to drop by,
