I JUST love YOU...CR84FN13 54

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, January 29, 2011 @ 9:57 PM | , ,

Hi there! It's time for another CR84FN Color Challenge! These colors are a little brighter and bolder than last week's. For some unknown reason, my creative brain seems to turn to mush when faced with bright colors but I LOVE a good challenge ;)
I combined various patterned paper with a stamped piece of my own using Musical Backgrounds. When in doubt, I seem to turn to background stamps to create whatever color of paper that I need.
I stamped a label using Holiday Labels. No.14 and layered with an oval bearing the sentiment I JUST love YOU and a heart from Sweethearts.
That's all for today, I hope you are able to join in the fun! Can't wait to see what you create! Thanks for taking the time to visit ~ Be Sweet :)

Supplies:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Holiday Labels. No.14, Sweethearts, Musical Backgrounds
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S4-290 Labels Fourteen, S4-242 Big Scalloped Borderabilities Petite, GC-001 Grand Calibur
Patterned Papers: Pink Paislee Cupid Collection, My Mind's Eye Fine & Dandy Collection

So sweet Mona. These bold colors still look great on a shabby card. I guess it is just how you dress it up. That red DP is very pretty.
Hugs~

I can definitely relate with you Mona! I struggle working with bright colors too. You did a great job because your card came out gorgeous.

This is a challenge I'm definitely willing to take on :)

If there is red involved I always get a bit stressed :) It's not really my kind of color. Thank you for sharing this beauty; I really need some inspiration and this turned out gorgeous.
But I think it will still take a few days to come up with something.
Love that music sheet (stamped) paper :)
A beauty; as usual!
