CR84FN9

Wednesday, January 5, 2011


I couldn't resist the gorgeous color combo this week at CR84FN Color Challenge and it's their very first official color challenge! Go check it out!! I don't use yellow that much but I was surprised how much I liked working with it and I love how well it goes with pink too!


I used Spellbinders Labels 4 dies and teamed it with Very Vintage Labels 4 from Waltzingmouse Stamps, stamped in lemon yellow. The sentiment is from Fancy Phrases also from Waltzingmouse Stamps, the detail in pink is from the Very Vintage Labels 4 set too. The little pink hearts are from Sweethearts stamp set.


The sweet pink stars paper is a digi paper Little Stars from Cupcake Cards & Craft, the pink polka dot paper and yellow dot paper are both from Flutterbies Dots by MKC at the Digichick. There's also a little bit of stamped Musical Backgrounds from Waltzingmouse Stamps in yellow. I used some peach lace and peach seam binding to bring in the peach color.


I really enjoyed making this one, loved the cheery colors!! Off to bed for me, it's been a long day, we were busy redecorating my mom's sitting room while she's been away on holiday (she had the colors picked already!) So glad it's finished, it is such a big room, looks great, really hope she likes it. She's coming home in a few days, it feels like she's been gone ages, really miss our chats! And Isabelle will be so happy to have her doting nana back! : )
