Thank You...Final CR84FN 45

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, January 19, 2013 @ 8:50 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! After a lot of careful thought and consideration, I've decided to bring the CR84FN Color Challenge to an end. I don't have a dramatic story to share, I simply would like to free up some of my crafting time and pursue other creative opportunities. I've been so blessed to be amongst such a great group of designers over the past 2+ years. I can't thank the DT enough for the sweet friendship, continual support and encouragement each and every week. I would also like to thank all of  the players and you my blog readers who supported the challenge whether you joined along or not :) xoxo

So you have until Wednesday to join along with CR84FN70 focusing on the pretty color combination shown below. Photos courtesy of kategrewal.com. 
I made a clean and simple Thank You card featuring a beautiful blossom made using Die-namics Plentiful Petals which I layered on a die cut chevron background made using Die-namics Chevron Stripes. The sentiment is from Die-namics Let's Toast Die & Stamp Set and was stamped using MFT Kraft ink.
Thank you for visiting! For some beautiful inspiration from several members of the CR84FN DT, please see the CR84FN blog.
