CR84FN32 - Birthday wishes to Mona ...

.... I think I've mentioned that there's something special about June - another of the Design Team is celebrating this week - our very own Mona Pendleton.  Have a very Happy Birthday!!

And now to our CR84FN colour challenge - bright, zingy, fresh colours - aqua, green and yellow - just gorgeous!!  Love them.


The inspiration pictures are courtesy of Leslie at A Creative Mint - great photos!!  Scott has come up trumps again with the quote - I so enjoy the creative process when making cards.

I've made a birthday card with these colours - and no, it's not Mona's card - you'll get to see that on the day!!  I wanted to make a card with a yellow "beetle" - you know, the car!!  I think it's a cute car - and I wanted to make the card for a girl!  I stamped the background using aqua and green, then I stamped the cute "beetle" onto white card and cut it out with my oval nesties.  I masked off the car and sponged on the sky and ground.  I used Promarkers to colour the car.  I cut out a beaded oval mat in bright aqua and threaded a yellow ribbon through the holes.  I made a matching, but smaller, beaded oval for the birthday sentiment.  To complete the card I added some lovely textured flowers, with gems, in the challenge colours.




Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Victorian Frippery, Half Pint Heroes, Say It Loud
Inks:  Stampin' Up! - Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise; Memento - Tuxedo Black; Distress - Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint
Spellbinders:  Beaded Ovals (S4-294) dies #4 and # 2, Classic Ovals (S4-113) ~ 5
Promarkers: Cyan, Canary, Lemon, Blush, Satin, Cool Grey 1 & 3
Accessories:  Petaloo - Flora Doodles; Card and ribbon from stash

Don't forget, as it's summer and we're all very busy with school events and holidays, the CR84FN challenge is now a fortnightly challenge.  So you've got even more time to enter!  For more amazing and inspirational cards don't forget to visit the other DT members:


That's all for now.  I look forward to seeing your creations soon.  Bye for now.
