CR84FN61 - thinking of you .....

....   It's time for our new CR84FN61 challenge using these lovely colours - aqua, tan and cream - I think they make for a very elegant look!


Stamps: Stampendous - Festive Flower; Stampin' Up! - So Happy For You
Inks:  Memento - Richo Cocoa
Spellbinders: Squares Sm (S4-128) # 6, Lacey Squares (S4-295) #4
Accessories:  Promarkers; Glitter and card from stash

I started with a cream linen textured card base and in my stash I found a scrap of this lovely dark aqua paper, from which I cut the backing lacy square and stamped the flower image twice.  I stamped the flower image onto white card and coloured the leaves with Promakers.  I finished off the card with a touch of glitter on the flower and a simple sentiment.

This card went home with my Mum at the beginning of the month - I gave it to my Aunty Sue because she cares so much about everyone else and sometimes doesn't take enough time for herself.  So this is to let her know that I am thinking about her and thankful for all she does.

For more inspiration cards with these gorgeous colours click on the links below or go to our CR84FN blog for full details of the challenge:




Here's the graphic for CR84FN61 colours - I think these photos (courtesy of Embrace Life Photography) are so beautiful, so restful!


We got home a couple of days ago - it was a fantastic trip - and Jonathan has taken loads of photos.  So I can't put it off any longer, I have to start some scrapbooks!  That's all for now - see you soon.

The way you have echoed the inner pattern of the teal flower with you lacey border is brilliant & I love the colour combination - the chocolate & teal are beautifully lightened with the cream the way you've made cream the base colour.
