CR84FN57 - Happy Birthday Mona ...

.... today is not only the start of our new colour challenge at CR84FN - it is also Mona's birthday!!  So I've used our gorgeous CR84FN57 colours of bright pink, tan and a neutral, and the layout from this week's Mojo Monday Sketch - MOJO246 to make a special card for Mona.


I'm normally more of a clean and simple girl, but I like to try my hand at layers occasionally, and I really like the MOJO sketch, however, I have turned it on its side!  I started with some Very Vanilla card stock which I made into the card base  I found this bright pink card in my scrap box (don't know which company) and decided to use that to make the mat layers.  I've used designer paper from Kaisercraft and Papermania to decorate the card.  And, as this is a birthday card, I decided to include some cupcakes.  I stamped the images several times onto designer paper, cut out the layer and attached them to the card.  I coloured the little flowers with a Sakura glaze gel pen - they have a lovely shine in real-life!

Mona - I hope you have a fabulous birthday and that you've received your card!


Stamps: Hero Arts - Cupcakes
Inks: Memento - Rich Cocoa
Spellbinders:  Lacy Squares (S4-295) #2, Squares Sm (S4-128) #3
Accessories:  Kaisercraft DP - Tigerlilly; Papermania - Exquisite; Stampin' Up! - Very Vanilla Card; Ribbon and Sakura Glaze Gel Pen from stash

I also decorated the inside of the card and the envelope - here are a few pictures.



We have some super inspiration cards to share with you - do visit the teams' blogs:

Mona Pendleton, Lisa Somerville, Andrea Mathews, Sue Lelli, Pauline Pollington, Suzanne Czosek, Shannon White, Heather Jensen.

Sadly, both Suzanne and Lisa will stepping down from the CR84FN Design Team following this challenge.  They have both been really inspirational designers and very supportive, and I wish them both well in their future endeavours.  Do drop by their blogs and leave some love!

I hope you all have a super Sunday - my plans include watching the England v Italy football quarter final!  I hope England goes through!!!  Bye for now!
