CR84FN42

Another wonderful color combination from Mona at CR84FN. Check out the marvelous samples from the DT. This is week two of this color challenge. There is still time to play so why don't you give it a try.


As the Holidays get closer I find that I have less and less time to play. It seems that once the Halloween candy is handed out the next thing you know it is time for champagne! I guess time really does fly when you're having FUN. That is, of course, if you consider the hustle and bustle of finding the perfect gift fun! I love seeing the excitement on the faces of my youngest grandchildren. Okay enough rambling.....back to the purpose of this posting.


Sometimes there is beauty in simplicity.  Die cuts, embossing folders, black pearl flourishes, a pearl brad, a silver sticker (colored with a black Peel Off marker) and ribbon from Hobby Lobby were used to make this simply beautiful card. The floral element used white and pink cardstock that was sprayed with a Pearl Ex and water mist before it was die cut. Of course I used my trusty Marvy Gold metallic pen!

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
