.... it's week two of the CR84FN34 colours - bright pink, pink and yellow - such beautiful, bright and cheerful colours. And perfect for a birthday card!
And today is actual Heather's birthday, so have a really Happy Birthday Heather!! This card is on its way to you as I type - if I'm really lucky you've got it already, but I suspect you'll get it in the next couple of days ;)
I used the sketch from the current Ribbon Reel challenge - it's a really sweet sketch with the proviso that you have to use at least one ribbon. The deadline for the Ribbon Reel challenge is today - so just made it.
I thought it would be just right for Heather's card. I got to play with lots of my lovely Spellbinder dies while making this card. For the centrepeice I decided to use the pretty layered flower from Sewing Box - Hugs as I could use these gorgeous papers to create the flower. I think my style is definitely tending towards the more clean and simple - even though there are quite a few layers here, it's still reasonably CAS!!

Don't forget over the summer period we're running each colour challenge for two weeks, so you've still got time to play with these lovely colours - check out the CR84FN blog for more inspiration.
That's all for now. It's going to be strange here as Mum is going back to her place today. We've had such a fun couple of months. Back later.
