Challenge #388 ~~ Ode to Jessi

For Challenge #388 at Shopping our Stash we wanted to do an "Ode to Jessi" she was a really bright spot on our design team and was taken way too soon, only 42 when she passed December. The challenge is to go to her blog and find something that inspires you and create a project, please put a link to the inspiration piece.  I'm sure I spent hours and hours looking through her blog every one of her cards inspired me, I picked three or 4 then settled on one. Here is my Ode to Jessi. To check out Jessi's Blog just click HERE.

5 1/4 inch square card, Gina Marie leaf die, 

Here is Jessi's card.

Since I didn't have enough red bells I used cardinals and the red bells were used instead of silver ones under the bow.  I was inspired by the colours, the beauty and the simplicity.

All supplies for my card are older than 1 year 

I would like to enter this in:

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to head over to the Main Blog and check out what inspired the rest of the design team.

What a beautiful CASE of Jessi's card. <3 Love the shiny red birds in place of bells. (Jessi may have had the world's largest collection of many coloured jingle bells!) And thanks for linking this over at ABC Christmas Challenge, too!

Oh, what a gorgeous wreath you created inspired by the one Jessi made, love the red birds in place of the jingle bells, the silver bow and silver bells just finish this card beautifully.
