Cupid...CR84FN6 61

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, December 4, 2010 @ 10:00 PM | , ,

Hi there! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Here today with a new color challenge. Thanks to all who played along over the last few weeks, there were a record number of 35 participants, ALL whom had beautiful projects to share!

Let's get to the randomly selected participant for the CR84FN6 Guest Designer spot is:
Anabelle, I would be honored if you would join along as my Guest for the next challenge :)

Next, I would like to introduce you to this week's Guest Designer:
Andrea's fabulous work can be found at Work in Progress.

Andrea made the following 2 pretty cards featuring some shimmery, glittered snowflakes:
 and this one, with an added pretty paper doily:
Thank you so much for joining along with me for this week's challenge :) I hope you all head on over to visit Andrea to see complete details and leave her some love :)

Here is my take on this week's colors:
I have to give my dear hubby, Scott, credit for choosing this week's color combo! He knows how much I love pink & aqua especially when combined together and insisted this challenge focus on those colors. After all since he is the one creating the graphic, I "let" him have his way :) I immediately pulled out the Pink Paislee Sweetness pack of paper and some of my other favorite crafty products to create my card.

I inked up the Cupid image from Pink Paislee Cupid with Memento Timber Brown ink then applied Ranger Rock Candy. Can you see the crackled appearance? In real life, the effects are incredible. Tocreate the shimmery, glittered Tattered Angels glimmer chip, I first sprayed the frame with Tattered Angels Cherry Blossom Glimmer Mist then glittered it up with some yummy glitter from my stash and topped it off with a Prima flower.
Thanks so much for visiting! 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.

*Work must be original.

*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.

Once you have your project photographed and uploaded to your blog or on-line gallery, please link the URL to your entry on this post using Inklinkz. If you use an on-line gallery, please be sure to use CR84FN6 as the keyword and if you have a blog, please display the graphic so I can easily find your entry. I hope you come join along and Create For Fun!

Challenge runs through: Saturday, December 11th 9:00 PM Eastern US time.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Fancy Phrases, Pink Paislee Cupid
