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

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:
