CR84FN50 - Thank you .....

... Today is the start of our new challenge at CR84FN.  The colours for the next three weeks are really bright and cheerful and I've had such fun with them.  These stunning wedding photos are courtesy of Southern Wedding Magazine.


I made a thank you card - and gave it to my Aunt last month.  As soon as Mona sent us the colour graphic I knew which papers I'd use; they're by Cosmic Cricket and are just gorgeous.  This card was easy to make - it was simply a case of cutting squares with my Spellbinders dies, matting and layering.  For the focal image I used the lovely two-step stamps Greenhouse Garden and cut them all out by hand!  I finished off with a small sentiment in the bottom corner.


Stamps:  Stampin' Up! - Greenhouse Garden
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Melon Mambo, Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight
Spellbinders: Lacey Squares (S4-295) #4, Standard Squares Sm (S4-128) # 5 & 6, Standard Squares Lg (S4-126) # 5
Accessories:  Stampin' Up - Tangerine Tango card; Cosmo Cricket - De Lovely; Card from stash

The design team and Shannon, our Guest Designer for CR84FN50, have made some wonderful cards to share with you, either click on the link below or go to the CR84FN blog.


Sadly, Stephanie will be stepping down from the Design Team following this challenge - she's an inspirational designer and great team member, and I'd like to wish her well in her future projects.  Do drop by and leave some love!

Don't forget CR84FN50 is running for three weeks, ending on Friday 30th March - so you've got lots of time to join in the fun!  See you soon.

That little sentiment works perfectly & your combination of the those colours is a real education - not sure I'd have dared to do that - very effective indeed.
Hope all is going well.
