with Sympathy...CR84FN35 55

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, July 30, 2011 @ 8:55 PM | , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having a great weekend! It's time already for an all new CR84FN Color Challenge! Thanks so much to all who join in the fun and thanks to those who visit 4FN :) For the next TWO weeks we are playing with the pretty color combo shown below:
The gorgeous photos in the graphic are courtesy of the ever so talented Leslie at a creative mint. I made this Sympathy card for a dear friend who recently lost someone near and dear to them. I have limited patterned paper in my collection so I thought I would get a little inky and create my own. I pulled out some gorgeous Pink Paislee DP from the Anthology Collection which has various "pre" embossed designs on it. All I did was sponge SU ink all over which then reveals the beautiful embossed design. What do you think?
Time permitting, I enjoy creating my own flower embellishments so using the My Favorite Things Rolled Roses dies, I made a few flowers and for a little extra shimmer I brushed on clear glue and dusted the roses with glitter. So EASY and inexpensive to make!
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit! 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 and don't forget to leave them some love :) Please remember they appreciate kind words as much as you all do who join in!


*** I will be back tomorrow, with an all new fun Flourishes Bring Back Beautiful challenge. Be Sweet :)
Supplies Used:
Stamps: PTI
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders Labels Four, Labels Four SM, My Favorite Things Rolled Roses, Grand Calibur, PTI
Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology Collection
