Special Day-- CR84FN67!!

Woot... woot! I've been keeping a secret!! I was thrilled when Mona sent me a message inviting me to join the CR84FN team!! Today is my first official post with the new DT. Make sure and check out the CR84FN blog... there are several new DT members!!

The colors that we'll be playing with for the next week and a half are plum, gold, and tan.

Gorgeous!! Now, I have to admit I am not a "big" purple person and, I was a "titch" intimidated at first...but, these colors look fabulous together!



I stamped text from Waltzingmouse Stamps Text It onto crumbcake and then stamped the hyacinths from Waltzingmouse Stamps Vintage Garden Flowers and heat embossed with clear. Distressed the edges and layered onto gold cardstock with a perfect plum base. Wanted the gold to blend a bit with the crumbcake so I sprayed with Tattered Angels gold glimmer mist. Sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps Vintage Garden Seed Packet was stamped in perfect plum onto a flag die cut with MFT's flag die-namics. Added some gold ribbon, button, and bow!

Close up of the glimmer mist... looks delish IRL!!



Now have fun, can't wait to see what you create with these colors!! Don't forget to check out the CR84FN blog to see all the new DT members and fabulous inspiration!!

Thanks for stopping by... appreciate all the sweet words!!

PS Blogger is messing with me... will get the sidebar DT links fixed in the am!! Geesh...
