Seeds of Friendship...CR84FN15 73

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, February 12, 2011 @ 9:57 PM | , ,

Hi there! It's time for another CR84FN Color Challenge! This week, we are coloring our world with a burst of bright, cheerful colors!
If you have a case of the Winter Blues or if you have Spring Fever, this color palette will surely brighten your day and maybe Spark Your Creative Spirit ;)
I stamped the seed packet image from Flourishes Seeds of Friendship, dressed it up with various stamped words and sentiments, distressed the edges, stitched it in place, and topped it off with a gorgeous Prima flower and leaves made using S4-321 Nested Leaves. I made a bow using Spring Moss Vintage crinkly ribbon Courtesy of Kimberly @ My Craft Spot and added a button and tag. I am playing along with this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge, FTTC104 where Makiko is challenging us use buttons on our project.
Please hop on over to each CR84FN for COMPLETE details and for some pure eye candy, please visit all the designers blogs and our Guest Designer:
and
Stella Schenkel (Guest Designer)
Thanks so much for looking! Hope you are able to play along! Be Sweet :)
