CR84FN27 -- 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 (CR84FN27), our color palette is Bright Pink, Gray and Cream. The lovely photos in the graphic above are courtesy of Adam at Embrace Life Photography.

Before I show you my card, I'd like to say thank you to my CR84FN teammates for the special posts and all of my friends and family who sent gifts, cards, emails, comments and Facebook birthday wishes! Even though my birthday was on the 5th, it felt like it lasted the whole week long! I'd also like to wish my mom and all of you moms out there a very Happy Mother's Day!

There are only 3 more weeks of school left, and I need to have teacher cards through June birthdays, so here's another birthday card! I went bright and bold with the colors this week. After talking about rosettes this week with Mona, I decided to pull out my MFT Die-namics 3/8" Rosette Die and make one.. the die cuts the paper like butter AND does the scoring for you.. super simple and fun! My label was created by first stamping one of the circular labels from Waltzingmouse's Vintage Circles-Small. "Happy Birthday" is from Say It With Style.

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:
