Birthday wishes...CR84FN48#2 48

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, February 18, 2012 @ 9:55 PM | , ,

Hi there dear blogging friends! Hope you are all having a great weekend! It's time for week two of the CR84FN Color Challenge. I would like to thank Monika for sharing her wonderful talent with us over the past month as our CR84FN Guest Designer!
I made a birthday card for my sweet sister Tina. We will be celebrating her birthday next Sunday, February 25th.
I die cut several pretty butterflies using pre-embossed patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Mistables Collection. To create the gray colored butterfly, I sponged Memento London Fog ink onto the Mistables paper and to create the lavender colored butterflies, I swiped Ranger's Milled Lavender Distress Strain onto the paper. That's the beauty of the Mistables patterned paper: it comes pre~embossed AND "naked", meaning NO color. You have the flexibility to make it whatever color your heart desires.
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current Stampin' Royalty challenge:
