CR84FN9 and Some Fun News!


Hello! Happy 2011! I'm starting the new year off with a challenge and some fun news! As many of you stampers may already know, Mona started hosting her own CR84FN (aka Create For Fun) color challenge a couple of months ago on her blog. She is kicking off the new year by moving it to a brand new site, and she invited me to join her design team! Of course, I said YES!

For this week's challenge (CR84FN9), Mona has chosen the lovely color palette of Yellow, Peach and Light Pink. The photos in the graphic above are courtesy of http://acreativemint.typepad.com/.


These colors made me think of spring, flowers and butterflies, so I decided to use Dawn McVey's Signature Series: Butterfly stamp and coordinating die (Papertrey Ink). I clear embossed the butterfly onto the die cut Melon Berry cardstock. I added a bunch of layers, some stitching, ribbon and a rhinestone flourish.

I used the round Mojo Monday 171 sketch for my layout:


For all the challenge details, please be sure to visit the CR84FN blog HERE. Mona's hubby, Scott, has done a fabulous job designing the website and graphics! I hope you will join us this week.. I can't wait to see what you create!
