CR84FN70 Week 2!!

Good Sunday morning!! So far, it is a really good Sunday morning for me!! I think I am finally on the mend from a "bug", honestly I don't think I have coughed that much in years, and exhausted... phew... haven't slept that much in years!! My youngest is not feeling well and she told me that she appreciated me sharing, LOL!!

It's time for week two of the CR84FN70 color challenge and we are still playing with Aqua-Tan- and Lt. Yellow!!

Gorgeous colors and gorgeous picture story!!

 It's interesting... when I photoshop on my new computer my cards do not look as dark as they are...guess there's a learning curve!

Had some fun playing with some new goodies from MFT!! Don't you LOVE those hybrid roses!! The aqua border was stamped with an image from Own Your Story- added some crochet doily borders and a little stitching. The petals on the roses are from cream CS cut three times- the outer layer and inner layer were distressed with crumbcake ink and the rose center was made with Authentique PP. Added some MFT flourishes and a wonderful sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About New Beginnings. Here's the link to MFT--- have fun browsing/shopping!!

Thanks for stopping by!! I am a bit behind in blogging but, I will be around to see your fabulous creations!!

ETA: This is the last CR84FN color challenge. Mona has decided to close the challenge to focus on other opportunities. Although, I am sad to see it close (not just as the DT but, as a long time player), I understand and will certainly still be "stalking" her blog- that girl knows how to play with paper and paint and inks....Many thanks for the years of time and effort (Mona and Scott-who creates the graphics)--it was an honor to work with you!! Last but, not least Thanks to all my fellow DT members for all the fun, kindness, and support--see you in blogland!!

I think your card is fabulous. Love the sentiment and the rolled roses (have got the die, but not used it yet) are really pretty. Lovely work.

So nice working with you on the team!
