CR84FN15 -- Happy Happy Birthday


Hello! It's time for another CR84FN Challenge! Thank you to all who joined us last week.. it was fun viewing all of your fabulous creations! For this week's challenge (CR84FN15), our color palette is Teal, Green and Yellow. The photos in the graphic above are courtesy of Leslie at A Creative Mint.


I quickly went through my stash and couldn't find any patterned papers that I liked well enough to use, so I made my own background paper by randomly stamping some doilies using My Mind's Eye Gertie "Girly" stamps. I was fortunate enough to win a collection of my choice from MME, and I chose the Stella & Rose - Gertie collection.. LOVE it! I didn't want to cover up the doilies, so I only added a strip of green vellum. I created my tags using Papertrey Ink stamps and die from Fillable Frames #1. I used my Copic Y17 marker to color some seam binding ribbon.

For all the challenge details, please be sure to visit the CR84FN blog HERE. I hope you will join us this week.. I can't wait to see what you create! For more inspiration, please visit my fellow design teammates:
