CR84FN challenge 12

Isn't this inspiration graphic from CR84FN a lovely one!  I was a little wary of using kraft with the pastels, but, as usual, after playing with the colors, I really like this combination!


Here is my submission for this challenge.


I'm in Florida now as a snowbird, and brought down a limited number of supplies, one of which was this vintage rose print that I printed off at home (sorry I can't remember where I snagged it).  I used that as my start, and added some pearly Core'dination Amethyst cardstock, running it through my Textile embossing folder, along with the kraft card base.  Thanks to Donna Mikasa, I ordered some winter white seam binding and dyed it with spun sugar mixed with some water to make it pale pink.  I added a doily, the sentiment and some pale pink pearls.  I think this one will be a Valentine for my parents! 

Thanks, Mona, for these lovely colors!

Supplies: kraft and Core'dinations Amethyst cardstocks, vintage rose print, paper doily, hand-dyed seam binding, spun sugar distress ink, Hero Arts CL311 Valentine Flourish (sentiment), pink heart pearls
