Happy Birthday Lisa...CR84FN19 57

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, March 12, 2011 @ 9:55 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having a fantastic weekend! It's time for another CR84FN Color Challenge! Thanks to all who played along with last week's bright and cheerful color combo ~ so many pretty cards to see and many thanks to all of you who take time to leave such sweet comments! This week, we are playing with a monochromatic color scheme of sorts: AQUA, STEEL BLUE and GRAY while wishing our DT member ~ Lisa Somerville a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY ~ hope you will too :)
The pretty photos used to create the color graphic are courtesy of Crate and Barrel.
To create my card, I layered various patterned papers from the darling My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose Collection. I stamped the PTI button card image then using a S5-006 Curved Rectangles to cut/emboss around the image, creating a tag. For sketch inspiration, I played along with this month's My Mind's Eye Sketch Challenge #21 (sketch designed by Anam Stubbington) which is also to use the theme "Celebrate Today". Perfect for the occasion!
I love to make homemade flowers so I did just that using a combination of S4-249 Big Scalloped Circles LG & S4-250 Big Scalloped Circles SM die templates.
Please hop on over to CR84FN for COMPLETE details on how to join in the fun and for some awesome inspiration, please visit all the designers blogs:  (don't forget to wish Lisa a Happy Birthday :)


That's all for now. Hope you have a wonderful day and perhaps play along! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: PTI Button Boutique, Friendship Jar
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S5-006 Curved Rectangles, S4-249 Big Scalloped Circles LG, S4-250 Big Scalloped Circles SM, S4-190 Labels Four, S4-242 Big Scalloped Borderabilities Petite, GC-001 Grand Calibur
