CR84FN41 Week 2 -- Have a Great Day

Hello! It's week 2 for the current CR84FN Challenge! If you haven't played along yet, you have just under a week to play in CR84FN41. Our color palette is Steel Blue, Gray and Yellow. Photos courtesy of Leslie at A Creative Mint.

I'd like to say a big thank you to our fabulous October Guest Designer, Cheryl Lea!

I stamped and embossed the larger butterfly from Inspired by - Butterflies with some Star Dust embossing powder, then I added some color to the butterfly by sponging on some Stormy Sky distress ink. My sentiment is from All Smiles. This is also for the November MFT Guest Designer contest (the challenge is to Bling it On!).

For sketch inspiration, I used this week's WSC Getting Sketchy #43 from My Favorite Things. All the challenge details can be found HERE.

For all the CR84FN 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:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
