Old Olive and a dash of blue and ruby! for CHALLENGES

Spring was short lived here in this neck of the woods, and it has begun to snow again. The forecast says up to 8" ...just great! Anyway Cupcake Charlie's opened up for the season this past Monday so, I am going to go get my first whiff of chocolate cupcakes being baked today....ummmm, sweets always make me feel better!
For today's card I thought I would loosely case the Stamping411 sketch and use the colors from Color Throwdown and eyelets for the Creative Belli Blog challenge, and lots of Baroque swirls for Tuesday Taggers! You know you just don't have to keep coming up with your own creations everytime you make a card. There are lots of inspirations out there, so try one or better yet CASE one. I hope I lead you to many! Enjoy your day!
