CR84FN68- You Make Me Smile!!

Good Sunday morning- hope yours is a relaxing one!! Grab a "cup of joe" or tea {that's my hubs} and enjoy what the DT have created!! This is the second week using these gorgeous colors ... CR84FN68 color challenge-- burgandy, gray, and cream!!


I went a little "banner happy"!! Don't tell me you don't LOVE banners... I'll find it hard to believe... well, I'll believe you but, banners make me smile... like fabulous sentiments... ribbon... flowers...gorgeous images... you get the idea!!

Embossed the background and spattered with some acrylic paint- Adironondack Snow Cap. Added  several banners using SEI and Basic Grey papers, SU ribbon, a big bloom die cut with MFT's Perfect Petals [love itl!} topped with a Webster's Pages sparkler... fun!! The sentiment is from an oldie but goodie... MFT Millie the Mouse!!

Can't wait to see what you create with these colors!! Check out the CR84FN blog for all the details and to see fabulous inspiration from the design team!!

The sketch will go through next Wednesday as normal... but, we will be taking a "little" holiday break. CR84FN69 will be posted on December 30th. The colors are scrumptious!

Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!

ETA: The sketch challenge is being extended until December 12th and there's a prize!! Check out the CR84FN blog for details!!
