I've used the layout from this week's Mojo Monday challenge - MOJO 247, obviously I picked the square version!! My neutral is Very Vanilla (Stampin' Up!) - it's a beautifully rich cream and the card is lovely to stamp on. I created the backing layer by repeating the text image all the way down the card and over stamping with the lovely diamond pattern. I used my Spellbinder dies to cut the cream sentiment label, to create the pattern down the ribbon panel and also to cut the backing circle. I added some pink card under the pattern. The rose was stamped twice and heat embossed; I cut out the centre section to give some dimension.

We have made a couple of changes to the CR84FN challenge. The deadline for submitting your creations has been changed to Wednesday night at 23.59 Eastern time - so you still have plenty of time to join in! We will be publishing details of the Terrific Top 3 on Saturday before our new colour challenge starts.
Here are the graphics for Mojo Monday and CR84FN57:
That's all for now - have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow!
