CR84FN64 - Hello Buttercup ....

.... Well, it's the last day of September, we're officially into Autumn!!!  It's time for our new colour challenge at CR84FN.  Our colours for the next week and a half are bright, fresh and spring-like!!!  Our colours for CR84FN64 are light blue, yellow and green!!  And I just love them.


The graphic photos are courtesy of Magnolia Rouge; they just fabulous and I've used the striped fabric and the pretty flowers as the inspiration for my card.


Stamps: PTI - Signature Greetings II, Rosie Posie, Happy Hexagons
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke
Spellbinders:  Classic Triple Scallop (E8-003), Rectangles Sm (S4-130) #4, Scalloped Rectangles Sm (S4-131) #4
Accessories:  PTI - Hexagon Die, Rosie Posie Dies; SU Card - Certainly Celery; Promarkers; Lace, gems and card from stash

I used the lovely hexagon die to make this card; I cut out a template, attached it to some card then, using Nicole Heady's hexagon colour plan, I stamped four colours over the template.  I cut this layer to fit the base of my card.  Using the Rosie Posie dies, I cut several flower and then stamped the images in So Saffron.  I used my Promarkers to add some depth to the flowers and leaves.  I cut the pretty scallop border from some card and attached to some white card and then attached the lace over the top.  I cut a couple of mats onto which I attached the flowers.  I stamped this super sentiment onto vellum as I didn't want to cover up the background pattern.  And I finished off the card with some bling!   And, I decorated the inside of the card too - using more hexagons!




I used this week's sketch from My Favourite Things - MFTWSC91 for the layout, and as there are scallops in several places this card is also being submitted to this week's Do You Stack Up? - DYSU81 challenge to use scallops.

Don't forget, we are continuing our Open Design Team Call with this challenge - check out the CR84FN blog for full information.

I had a brilliant day yesterday.  We finally finished unpacking our moving boxes!!  Yes, I know we've been here a while, but sometime you just keep putting things off!  Well, I do.  Everything has been put away and now all that's left is getting rid of the empty boxes.

Kathryn and I plan to have a girly day - we're off to the cinema.  Not sure what we'll see yet, but it'll be a fun day.  Jonathan is off to a photo shoot.  Enjoy your day - see you soon.

Delightful with the lace on white & the way your striped blue hexagon picks up the stripes of the inspirational photo. Not an easy colour combination to work. Love the way your scalloped green edging picks up the shape of those leaves.

Such a clever and eye-catching way to use these beautiful colors, Deborah! The roses really stand out against the blue shading of the rectangle beneath. You have such a great eye for detail!
