Happy Birthday...CR84FN62 #2 44

Mona Pendleton | Friday, September 7, 2012 @ 7:32 PM | , , , ,

Hi there sweet blogging friends! Hope you are all having a great weekend! I'm here a day early with a few cards to share for the second half of the CR84FN62 Color Challenge! For the first time, we are having an open DT call! We will be adding several members to the DT so if you would like to be part of DT with super talented and sweet ladies, please be sure to visit the CR84FN site for COMPLETE details! The graphic was made using beautiful photos courtesy of magnoliarouge.com.
I needed two cards ASAP, one for my MIL who will be celebrating her birthday on Monday, September 10th and one for a dear friend. I have to admit, I took the path of least resistance and made two of nearly the same card, simply switching up the sentiments for the occasion. Why reinvent the wheel right? ;)
To make these cards, I used the Die-namics Flower Silhouette Die & Stamp Set. First I die cut the flower, stamped the flower image, colored with various Copic markers then added a layer of glitter. The sentiments on the front of the cards are from Finishing Flourishes.
I finished off the inside as well using sentiments from Die-namics Flower Silhouette Die & Stamp Set:
Here's the one for my dear friend. Pretty much the same, just a different background patterned paper from Melissa Frances, main sentiment on the card front from Finishing Flourishes
and a different sentiment on the inside from Die-namics Flower Silhouette Die & Stamp Set:
Thanks so much for visiting! Please be sure to visit the DT members for wonderful inspiration (listed on my side bar) and the CR84FN site for COMPLETE details. 
Be Sweet :)

Stamps: Die-namics Flower Silhouette Die & Stamp Set, Finishing Flourishes
Dies: Die-namics Oval Open Scallop Doily DUO, Die-namics Little Open Scallop Strip
