Thank You...CR84FN7 67

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, December 11, 2010 @ 9:55 PM | , ,

Hi there! I hope you are all having a fun weekend, perhaps your busy shopping or baking or papercrafting? Whatever you are doing hope you are having a lot of fun! Thanks to all who played along with last week's challenge, ALL were such beautiful projects :)

Let's get to the randomly selected participant for the CR84FN8 challenge:
Suzanne, I would be honored if you would join along as my Guest for the CR84FN8 Challenge :)
Next, I would like to introduce you to this week's Guest Designer:
Anabelle's inspirational artwork can be found at Bits and Pieces...

Anabelle made this gorgeous holiday card featuring a pretty wreath with sparkly berries:
Close up, you can see all the shimmery goodness on the sweet flower and berries:
Thank you so much Anabelle for joining me with this week's challenge :) I hope you all visit Anabelle's site Bits and Pieces... for complete details and to share some love :)

Here's my interpretation of this week's colors:
For the focal point, I made a flower embellishment using a combination of die cuts from S4-249 Big Scalloped Circles LG and S4-250 Big Scalloped Circles SM. After making the flower, I fastened it to the label that was stamped with an image from Very Vintage Labels No. 1 then cut/embossed using a S4-161 Labels One die template.  

Up close, you can see the embossed detail of the Musical Backgrounds.
Thank you for looking :) I hope you feel inspired 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 CR84FN7 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!
