Create For Fun

Time for another great color challenge from Mona. This week at CR84FN the challenge is to make a card with Steel Blue, Gray and Yellow. You have to admit that the color challenges at CR84FN are always different and challenging! You should get some papers and give this combo a try....you might even add some new colors to your repertoire.


These are not colors that I would normally use, but I thought I would give them a try. The stamp is from Repeat Impressions, the shape and lace border die cuts are from Spellbinders, paper from a DCWV pad, pearls from Want2Scrap, glitter from my stash, and the silk flowers are from A.C. Moore. The stamp was colored with Copic markers. The vase was paper pieced and a few of the flowers were stamped and colored twice then fussy cut and mounted with foam tape.

Here is the inspirational photo.


Don't you just love this week's quote. Get some paper and celebrate just living! To make it even better...create a card with a friend.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
