CR84FN18 -- Special 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 (CR84FN18), our color palette is Orange, Yellow and Kraft. The lovely photos in the graphic above are courtesy of Adam at Embrace Life Photography.

Since it is a new month, we bid farewell to our February guest designer, Stella Schenkel. Thanks so much to Stella for joining us and sharing her wonderful creations with us! Please welcome our March guest designer, Deb Hickman!


Spring break is just around the corner, so I took a quick peek at the teacher birthday list and realized that there are 4 during that week, so I figured I better get cracking! My polka dot paper was a little too white for my liking, so I inked it with some Versamagic Wheat to tone it down a bit. I used some new Spellbinders goodies, Floral Doily Accent (border) and Floral Doily Motifs (doily behind my sentiment). Sentiment is from Verve's Birthday Surprise. I finished my card off with some seam binding and a button tied with Tangy Tangerine Baker's Luster Twine from Pizzazz Aplenty.

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:
