With Love...CR84FN21 63

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, March 26, 2011 @ 8:55 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having a fabulous 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!

I would like to take a moment to thank our Guest Designer, Deb Hickman for all of her hard work and weekly inspiration over the past month :)
This week we are playing with GARNET, CHARTREUSE AND CREAM. The beautiful color graphic was created using photos courtesy of Adam at embrace life photography.

Once again, I turned to some gorgeous Webster's Pages patterned paper and many of my favorite other papercrafting supplies to create my card. 
I stamped a label from Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No. 18 using a S4-310 Labels Eighteen die template to cut/emboss the beautiful image then layered a gorgeous Prima flower on top along with a few leaves made using S4-321 Nested Leaves die templates.
To create the tag, I stamped the WITH LOVE sentiment from Waltzingmouse Seasons Of Love - Tags   using a S5-029 Nested Lacey Pennants die template to cut/emboss the image and attached it to a beautiful bow made using Vanilla Bean Vintage crinkly ribbon Courtesy of Kimberly @ My Craft Spot.

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 I have for today :) Hope you have a great one and perhaps play along! Be Sweet :)

Ginny said...

Another beautiful card. I love all of the wonderful elements of this card; the printed paper, the bow, the flower, the die cuts. You have a way of putting things together that don't over power the card. Even that garnet flower seems to be soft on your card. I love the webster papers, but can't seem to make them work. You create such beautiful cards even with every paper you use. Love them all!

Maria said...

Gorgeous flower and paper! And love that little vintage label, so sweet! A beautiful card as always, Mona!
