Inventory Challenge # 43 - Swirls and Curves (or Curls)

I am really excited today!  This is my first Inventory Challenge card.  I've seen the cards on some of the girls' blogs and wondered what it was all about.  So to satisfy my curiosity I asked!  That was easy.  Now getting everything to upload correctly may be another story.

Having said all that, let's get to the card pictures.

There are lots of swirls, curls and curves on the front of my card.

I colored Tilda several months ago so I don't have the Copics I used.
The swirls are a Magnolia Doohickey Die - Leaf and Swirl.
The flowers are from Magnolia-licious and Wild Orchid Crafts.

Here is the inside where I've used another Doohickey Die - Antique Lace - across the DP bottom edge. 
The sheer ribbon was from my stash.
The flower spray is Wild Orchid Crafts.

The cardstock is SU's Regal Rose and retired Taken With Teal.

The next pic is a close up of the jotting panel.

The jotting panel was die cut using a Marianne Designs  doily die.
The Regal Rose paper was cut using Nestibilities Scalloped Circles - Large.
I glued small pearls in each of the scallops.

Please stop by my team mates' blogs and see what they've done.

Hope you have enjoyed your visit!

She's adorable, Kathy. Colors are so bright and the swirls so 'perky'. She looks like she's ready to break into a happy soft shoe shuffle. Who wouldn't want to dance when on a cute card like this!!
