While I'm at it...let's CR84FN!

It's my first time playing along with Mona Pendleton's CR84FN Color Challenge!  I picked a week with a bit of a tricky combination for my first go around...


Brown, Tan, and Green...ohhh it was hard keeping away from the red on this one.  But I did it!


I had the Love Lives Here: Holiday stamp set out for the PTI Blog Hop and just kept going!  Also used 2 new Black Friday finds, the Triad Leaves and Snowflake #8 Embossing Folders by Sizzix/Basic Grey.  Used Grass cardstock by A Muse Studio which has a white core.  It started to show through with the crisp embossing, so I sanded over it even more.


Added lots of sparkle with Crystal Snow glitter by Stampendous on the angel's wings and star, some Sakura Stardust glitter pen on the branches, and some A Muse Studio Latte pearls on her skirt.

I had SUCH fun with this challenge!  So much inspiration from Mona, the Design Team, and all of the other participants.  Be sure to visit the CR84FN blog HERE to play along, too!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Love Lives Here: Holiday, Papertrey Ink
Paper:  PTI Vintage Cream and Kraft, A Muse Studio Grass cs
Ink:  VersaColor Umber, Color Box Chesnut, Fresh Ink in Tuscan Olive, Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress ink
Other:  Spellbinders oval die, Sizzix/Basic Grey embossing folders in Triad Leaves and Snowflake #8, Crystal Snow glitter by Stampendous, sandpaper, A Muse Studio Latte pearl stickers, twine

Unreal. This is so beautiful Kelly! What an intro card for CR84FN! Top three material to me, if there ever was one. Shivers, this is divine! Pun intended.

So elegant Kelly, and you got to use your Black Friday finds too. I love how you used the three colors and those impressions folders added so much texted to the cards. Gorgeous angel.
