.... it's week two for our CR84FN41 colours - blue, grey and yellow - and this time I've gone for a softer look.
Leslie of Creative Mint has provided our inspiration photos - and I think they're just lovely. I think the middle picture was more my inspiration this time round.
I made this for my sister-in-law who is having a really tough time at the moment, we wanted to send her a card to show that we care and that we're thinking of her. One of my favourite flowers is the agapanthus so I based my card on them. The flowers were embossed in detail silver and I added some colour to the outline images, then I softened the edge by adding two shades of yellow. The sentiment panel was made from striped designer paper layered onto some blue card. I stamped the sentiment and embossed with silver, added "thinking of you" in pale grey - it shows up more in real-life!
Stamps: Stampendous - Agapanthus Cluster; Waltzingmouse - Say It Loud
Inks: Versamark; Stampin' Up! - So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Stampin' Up! designer paper; Silver embossing powder and card from stash
I used the Clean & Simple layout - FTL162 for my card - but I missed the deadline to submit to their blog!
These colours are so pretty and we've already had lots of lovely entries, but there's still time to join in. Check out the CR84FN blog to see more inspirational cards from the Design Team. Our Guest Designer Cheryl Lea is leaving us this week, but she's made one more lovely card to share - thanks so much for joining us.
Our clocks go back one hour Sunday morning - a week earlier than in the US - and it's giving me a bit of a headache making sure I schedule the right time for this post! Well, here's hoping it goes up at the right time. See you all later.
