CR84FN49

This is my third posting today! Yikes! A new record.


This week Mona has chosen yellow, kraft and gray for CR84FN color challenge. Beautiful colors but....not in my 'comfort zone'. Since this is a 'CHALLENGE', I challenged myself to create a card with these colors.



The image is a Flourishes stamp. (I won this stamp set and two others at the Pinter-Inspiration challenge, I'll show you the stamps later in this posting). The dp are from K and Co and the image was colored with Copic markers.


A Spellbinders edgeabilities die was used for part of this border. After the paper was die cut with the SB die, I used scissors to cut the individual oval pieces apart, wove ribbon through the openings and then mounted them on top of a MFT die.

This Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch (designed by yours truly) was used to create this card.  I am a 'work in progress' when it comes to designing sketches. (lol)


This is the wonderful inspirational photo that was used for this card.


I think I need to hang this inspirational verse in my Butterfly Garden! (wink)

Last but not least here is a photo of the wonderful stamp sets that I won. THANKS FLOURISHES!


Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

This is just wonderful, Marie. You have coloured your image in beautifully. I absolutely love Flourish stamps. I have ordered the Cherry Blossoms, and I'm waiting eagerly for their arrival. They are not easily available here in the UK x

Congrats on winning a fun prize. This is stunning! Such a unique color combination, that really works beautifully. Fun way the ribbon is threaded through the die cut, too.
