CR84FN56 - Sweet Birthday Wishes ...

.... to Pauline Pollington, my design teamie and friend.  Pauline celebrated her birthday on 14th June and hopefully has received this card by now!!  I used our fabulous CR84FN56 colours of yellow, grey and neutral.  These colours are proving to be popular, we've already had lots of lovely submissions and you still have a week to play.

Like me, Pauline is a Waltzingmouse fan, so I had to use WMS on her card.  I started off by stamping the pretty art deco style border at the top of the card and layered some yellow designer paper on the bottom half and hid the join with some dark grey ribbon.  Claire Brennan (owner of WM) has made lots of stamps that coordinate with Spellbinder dies, and I used the stamps that coordinate with this border.  While in the die I added yellow shading.  I stamped the tiny rose onto a scrap of the yellow paper, coloured the leaves green and then cut it out and attached to the label.  I finished off by added the sentiment.


Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Compact Sentiments, Vintage Labels 25, Paris Nouveau
Inks: Memento - Grey Flannel; Distress - Squeezed Lemonade
Spellbinders: Labels 25 (S5-077) # 3 & 4
Accessories:  Cosmo Cricket DP - Delovely; Ribbon and card from stash

Here are our lovely CR84FN56 colours:


Do check out the CR84FN blog for full details of the challenge, and don't forget to check out the rest of the Design Team's cards.

As it's Father's Day today, our plans will be decided by Jonathan - it's his day!!  See you soon.
