Merci...CR84FN20 65

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, March 19, 2011 @ 9:00 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 color combo ~ so many wonderful cards to see and many thanks to all of you who take time to leave such sweet comments!
This week we are playing with PLUM, LAVENDER AND GREEN. The beautiful color graphic was created using photos courtesy of Adam at embrace life photography.

I turned to some gorgeous Webster's Pages patterned paper and many of my favorite other papercrafting supplies to create my card.
Not a whole lot of stamping going on here except this sweet little tag. I stamped a label using an image from Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No. 18 then cut/embossed using a S4-310 Labels Eighteen die template. 
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:


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

Supplies Used: 
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No. 18, Victorian Frippery
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S4-310 Labels Eighteen, GC-001 Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: Webster's Pages gardener's seeds, foo on film 
Ribbon: Deep Purple Vintage crinkly ribbon Courtesy of Kimberly @ My Craft Spot.
