Festive Friday #0071 - World Kindness Day

It's time for another Festive Friday Challenge!  Every second Friday we post a challenge for you with a specific theme and a Inspo List of 10 items to choose from to create your project.  We encourage you to create a project based on the theme and Inspo List and then post it using at least 3 items from the inspiration list.

This week’s challenge #FF0071 is World Kindness Day on November 13th. Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project and link up! #festivefridaychallenge  At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion. I hope you’ll make a card, scrapbook page or 3-D project and join us. You don’t need a blog to enter Festive Friday. Check out this link on how you can play along with this challenge. If you want help entering, please email me at stampinwithmelva@gmail.com and I’d be happy to help you! 

For today's challenge, I selected pearls, die cut, pattern paper, ribbon, flowers, sentiment and fun fold from this week’s Inspo List.  I hope you will join us in our challenge this week. I can’t wait to see what YOU create.  

You can check out the instructions and supply list for this card below.
