Bright Pink, Gray, Cream

Happy Mother's Day!  Hope all you Moms are treated royally today!!  Here are the colors for this week's CR84FN challenge this week: 


For this challenge, I decided to stamp and paper-piece a die-cut label as my base.  So I alternated grey-on-white strips with white-on-grey ones.  Then I remembered this lovely Hero Arts Jewelled Flower.  I placed it over some winter white loops of seam binding, added my sentiment on a die-cut label, and backed the whole thing with my beloved BoBunny dots:


supplies: white and grey cardstock, Stampin Up Top Note diecut as a base,  from top: Hero Arts CG211 Magical Background, CG102 Antique Brocade, S5213 Dots and Flowers, CG125 Friends Definition, S5341 Lace Background, K5175 Houndstooth, Penny Black sentiment 30-067 To You on Nesties Labels Eight, Stampology ink (grey), Versamark and white embossing powder, Hug Snug seam binding in winter white, Hero Arts CH249 Jeweled Pastel Flowers, BoBunny Blush Dot as background


Thanks for visiting!  Now please see what the CR84FN Design Team did for this challenge: Mona, Suzanne, Deborah, Heather, Stephanie, Sue, Andrea, and Lisa.  And hope to see you playing along with these colors, too!
