CR84FN challenge #30

Today is my final card as a guest designer at CR84FN.  The month has flown by, and I've really enjoyed it!  Thanks to Mona, Suzanne, Deborah, Heather, Stephanie, Sue, Andrea, and Lisa  for making me feel so welcome.  Here are the colors for this week's challenge, compliments of Martha Stewart:


We are celebrating Deb's birthday this week, so here is a birthday card for her.  I decided to look back into my old archives of my past work, and did a version of a window card from 2009.  The original idea came from my friend Kathy Racoosin.  

supplies: kraft cardstock, scrap of old K&Company Tim Coffey dp for inside oval, Hero Arts Spring Art Flowers CH151, and spring buttons, CL497 Find Joy, CL380 Truly Appreciated, versafine onyx black ink, Martha Stewart butterfly punches, Nesties classic ovals large die, pearls


Here's what my card looks like inside:


Now, go on over to CR84FN and see what the Design Team has in store for you!

And since my flowers make a frame of sorts, I'd like to enter this into the City Crafter Challenge "I've Been Framed".

Lovely!! The flowers are sooooo gorgeous, and I love them centered with pearls! :)
About your sweet comment on my blog - no, I didn't get the product from a brick and mortar store. I've actually only been to a scrapbook store once in my life, and that was when I wasn't even really cardmaking! I need to go check out some more stores, though.
Oh, and I got my stuff wholesale - 50% off! :D
