CR84FN43

Another lovely color combination at CR84FN. The colors for this challenge are Brown, Tan and Green. I've been making Christmas cards so this combo is a nice change from the traditional Christmas colors that I have been using. If you haven't submitted a card yet, there is still time to play!


I never have Sympathy cards when I need them so I took the opportunity to turn this card into a Sympathy card. The brown ribbons that I had were either too sheer or too narrow, so I layered them. Embossing folder is Cuttlebug, foliage is Sizzix, pearls from Want2Scrap and ribbon from Michaels.

Inspirational photo that inspired this card:


FYI........(read the quote) there is very little green grass anywhere around my home! It has something to do with the falling leaves of Autumn and that white stuff which falls at this time of year. It has nothing to do with 'not taking good care of your grass.'

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

Hi Marie, LOVE how you gathered the leaves and gathered them with that PRETTY bow! LOVE the pearls and the embossing! Good idea to have a sympathy card ready ~ they're too hard to make when you really need one. THX for playing with us at CR84FN!

Beautiful card. Love how you arranged the leaves to form a bouquet. Love that embossing as well as the layout of your ribbon.

SO PRETTY Marie! Love the way your embossed background mimics your cluster of leaves in your fun bouquet! Sorry for my lateness in visiting. My little Max went to the doggy dentist for a teeth cleaning and he had two tiny loose teeth, so they pulled them :( I've been giving him some extra attention (like he doesn't get enough already) ~ HA!!!
