Mother...CR84FN25 54

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, April 23, 2011 @ 8:55 PM | , , ,

Happy Easter Sunday to all those who celebrate! No Easter egg hunting going on at my house but the Easter Bunny still visits and brings everyone their own baskets full of Easter JOY :)

Before I get to the new CR84FN Color Challenge, I would like to thank Silke Ledlow for joining the CR84FN DT as our April Guest Designer :) Thanks so much to all who played along with us last week ~ so many pretty pastel projects that filled the gallery and thanks to all who continually support the challenge, the CR84FN DT and me :)

This week, we have a little bit bolder color combo to challenge you with:
 RED, AQUA and WHITE

With Mother's Day right around the corner ;), I made a card for my sweet Mother-in-law, Barbara. 
I stamped the bouquet of Tulips image from Papertrey Ink Friendship Jar Spring Fillers colored with Copic markers shown below then cut the image out. Using the Papertrey Ink Jar and Lid die templates to cut the jar and lid, stamped the coordinating images then pieced it all together.
Both the sentiments are from Waltzingmouse Roses In Bloom.
Shown below is the combination of the Copic Markers used:
Thanks for stopping by today :) 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:

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Roses In Bloom, Papertrey Ink Friendship Jar, Friendship Jar Spring Fillers
