CR84FN26 -- Celebrate Today & Every Day

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 (CR84FN26), our color palette is Kraft, Pale Yellow and Gold. The lovely photos in the graphic above are courtesy of Martha Stewart.

This is our first challenge of May, so please welcome our new Guest Designer, Lin Brandyberry!

One of Sabrina's para aides (Elisa) has a birthday on Monday, so I made this for her.. she always goes the extra mile with Sabrina, so I thought I'd make her a "happy" card to let her know how much we appreciate her.. I used PTI's A Year of Flowers: Daffodils.. I random stamped the smaller daffodil on the Kraft cardstock base and clear embossed them. I stamped it a few more times on some pale yellow vellum and embossed in silver pearl. I cut the daffodil out and added a little of the gold color with a few Copic markers. My lace trim was tatted by my SIL, Mary.

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:
