CR84FN34 - Birthday Greetings ....

....  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!!

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse: Sewing Box - Hugs, Say It Loud
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Stampin' Up! - Melon Mambo; Distress - Mustard Seed
Paper:  Cosmo Cricket - De Lovely (6 × 6); Pink Petticoat Blossom
Spellbinders:  Standard circles Sm (S4-116) #4, Fleur de Lis Squares (S4-318) #4, Beaded Circles (S4-292) #3, Create-a-flake Three (S4-348)
Accessories:  Card, ribbon and buttons from stash


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.
