CR84FN challenge


Such pretty colors this week at CR84FN!  My mind identified the flowers on that beautiful cake as pansies or violets and off I went!  Here is my card using these colors:




supplies: kraft cardstock, digital image of an old postcard, overstamped with Flourishes Violets,  watercolored with Prismacolor pencils, then overstamped with Hero Arts S5507 Envelope Pattern in antique linen distress ink, also distressing the edges, scrap of lace also touched with antique linen ink, plastic raffia for bow, Hero Arts lavender spring button, sentiment from Papertrey Ink "Embellishments", stamped in versafine onyx black ink on lavender cardstock, Martha Stewart pansy border punch on Bazzill lavendar dotted swiss cardstock


Please visit the CR84FN blog to see the amazing cards by the design team: Mona, Suzanne, Deborah, Heather, Stephanie, Sue, Andrea, and Lisa .

  6. This card is lovely Lin, although the digital image is flat, you have enhanced it by adding the elements; the lace and the button bow, it suits the Kraft card so well.
