Red, yellow and neutral

Look at this fun graphic that Mona put together for us this week at CR84FN, and I love her quote this week, too!


I was drawn to that red gingham and the canning jars first and also the daisies.  Here is what I came up with this week:


supplies:  kraft cardstock, October Afternoon Modern Homemaker "cherry pie" dp, various yellow/gold dps from Cosmo Cricket, My Mind's Eye, and October Afternoon, Papertrey Ink Friendship Jar, Friendship Jar Spring Fillers, Vintage Picnic Sentiments, Hero Arts CL304 A Million Thanks (daisy), versafine onyx black ink, vellum, paper doily, red gingham ribbon, Hobby Lobby lace, twine, red ribbon, punched tag from Judy, tiny red button

I recently got the PTI Friendship Jar set and the accompanying Spring Fillers.  My flowers are actually the tulip bunch from that set, covered over with these Hero Arts daisies, stamped on lots of yellow or gold patterned papers.  I added a layer of vellum over the stems to give the effect of an opaque canning jar, a bit of red gingham ribbon and some lace around the top of the jar, and the doily seemed a good backdrop.

Don't forget to visit the CR84FN Design Team's blogs: Mona, Suzanne, Deborah, Heather, Stephanie, Sue, Andrea, and Lisa.  I can't wait to see what they did with these fun colors!
