If you have never visited her site, please be sure to head on over there and see what you have been missing!
I would like to introduce you to this week's Guest Designer:
Paper Crafts by Laurel. For some awesome inspiration, Laurel created the following two sweet cards: Don't you love the beautiful shimmery butterfly fluttering about?:

Here's my take:
Claire's, Waltzingmouse Stamps that will be released today at 2:00 PM Eastern. To create the background paper, I first inked up the Twas the Night Before Christmas image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamped then followed by randomly stamping various sized Poinsettias and leafs from Big Blooms Poinsettias. The window, wreath and sentiment images are all included in the Twas the Night Before Christmas set. Claire has an amazing tutorial on her blog on how to create "wee little windows". You may find this tutorial extremely helpful.
I was inspired to make a door using various Spellbinders™ rectangular die templates by Spellbinders Blog Author: Beth Pingry. I went back to take a peek at Beth's card and it was removed for publication! Yeah Beth!!! Either way, Beth was my source of inspiration.
Very Vintage Labels No. 2 and the sentiment and motif are from Twas the Night Before Christmas. I finished off the tag with a homespun Poinsettia embellishment made using a S4-219 Nested Poinsettias die template.
Thanks so much for looking! I hope you are able to play along :)
Now for the CR84FN Challenge details:
I would like to invite ONE randomly selected participant as the next challenge's Guest Designer :) I would like to keep things on an even playing ground so in order to do so, all you need to do is follow a few simple guidelines:
*Please display the CR84FN graphic with your post if you have a blog. Leslie graciously offers her photos as inspiration and I would like to give her proper recognition. My dear hubby Scott takes the time to create the graphic. Seeing the graphic makes it much easier to locate your entry on your blog.
*Please do not combine the CR84FN with any other COLOR challenges.
*You are more than welcome to submit as many creations as you like however, the number associated with your first entry will be the number considered in the random generator.
