You Blow Me Away...CR84FN57 52

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, June 23, 2012 @ 8:55 PM | , ,

Hello there! Welcome to a new CR84FN Color Challenge! Thanks to all who took on the CR84FN56 Color Challenge ~ there were so many beautiful projects in the gallery! Before we get to CR84FN57, we are saying so long to both Suzanne and Lisa. I would like to thank them for sharing their creative talents with CR84FN over the last 16 months. We have all met in real life and I know our crafty paths will cross again one day soon :) 


For the next two weeks, we will be playing with the pretty color combination shown below. 
I made this cheerful, uplifting, over sized card for my sweet sister Tina using a combination of products from My Favorite Things / Die-namics.  
I'm embarrassed to admit that the sweet pinwheel and sentiment from Die-namics Perfect Pinwheel and Stamp Set are from the very first die/stamp combination set that I purchased from My Favorite Things nearly a year ago and this is the first time I put them to good use. YIKES!!!
The mini rolled rose and leaves were made using Die-namics MINI Rolled Roses and Die-namics Royal Leaves.
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club sketch challenge:
