Happy Birthday Andrea...CR84FN31 63

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, June 4, 2011 @ 8:55 PM | , ,

Hi there! It's time for a new CR84FN Color Challenge but before we get to that, I would like to wish my DT mate Andrea Mathews a VERY Happy Birthday! This week we are celebrating Andrea's birthday and I am sure she would do back flips if you were so kind to stop by and wish her a happy one :) click HERE
The CR84FN DT is going on summer vacation!!! :) Starting with CR84FN31, we will be switching to a bi-weekly challenge because of vacations, children home from school and just time to enjoy the summer months :) Now you have TWO weeks to play along rather than one! There were an amazing 91 entries last week! Thanks to all who played along and thanks to those who support the challenge :) Now on to this week's Color Challenge: 
This week are playing with Light Pink, Medium Green and a Neutral. The beautiful color graphic was created using photos courtesy of Steven Steinhardt.com 
I made Andrea's Birthday card using a variety of PTI stamps and dies, patterned paper from My Mind's Eye and Prima, and a flower from Kaiser and a BIG crocheted homespun bloom from my sweet sister Tina :)

Thanks for visiting today :) Please hop on over to CR84FN for COMPLETE details on how to join in the fun and for some jaw dropping inspiration, please visit all the designers blogs:

Supplies Used:
Stamps: PTI Turning a New Leaf, Postmarks
Dies: PTI Leaf Prints, Postage Stamp

Does your sister have an Etsy shop .......... that flower was the first thing that caught my eye and of course how smart you were to use it as a layering piece .......... you know how to mix and match it all so well!! You are for sure one person who does not wear a pant suit of matching pants and jacket ~
