CR84FN69 - Thank You ....

..... Hi, it's week two for CR84FN69 with our lovely colours of raspberry, lavender and a neutral.  I almost didn't make this card - we've had a long holiday and I completely lost track of time!!  After Christmas and the New Year, we all need Thank You cards, so that's what I've made.


Stamps:  CAS-ual Friday - Truth Is, Big Thanks
Inks: Distress - Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Dies: Spellbinders - Pinking Circles Sm (S4-172) #5
Accessories: Papermania DP - Creative Tones Raspberry; Staedler - Aquarelle Pencils; Organza ribbon and card from stash

This card came together really quickly.  Some pretty paper for the background, a simple square of raspberry card onto which I stamped thank you around the edges and the main focal image of pretty flowers.  I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the sentiments.  I stamped the flowers onto white card, cut them out with the pinking circle and inked the edges while in the die.  I coloured the flowers with my Aquarelle pencils and adhered them with dimensional tape.

I'm submitting this card to the following challenges:




You might be wondering how this fits with the CASology cue word NEW - well the stamps I used are new and just lovely too!  And I've obviously gone for the square sketch from Mojo Monday!!  Here's a close up of the pretty flowers - so pleased how they turned out!

For more inspiration with our fabulous colours from the team - click on the links in my sidebar or visit the CR84FN blog.  Before I go I must welcome Lisa Snowdy of Adventures in Paperland as our Guest Designer for January - so glad to have you join the team.

That's all for now - looking forward to seeing more of your lovely projects with these fab colours!!  See you soon.
