Just Thinking About You/ CR84FN12

Hello my sweets.  I have had a long week and I am happy to have some time to craft and post my card for this weeks colors at CR84FN.  These are some of my favorite colors and I actually had a time getting something together.  When I did, it came together beautifully.  I am pleased with how it turned out.  Are you?

 I used my favorite butterfly set from Layers of Color  called Butterfly Collector.  I know you have seen me use this before.  It is perfect for shading and some glitter.  I stamped the butterfly in Rich Cocoa from Memento....one of my fav inks to use.  Just softens up the image a little better than using black ink.
 Some pretty Pink Pearls bling from Want 2 Scrap and seam binding with a pretty Prima flower finish off the embellishments.  I used the sketch at Card Patterns, but missed the cut off to link up.  I didn't think ahead of time, that by the time I post, it would be too late.  Oh well.  It is a great sketch anyway.
Look at this wonderful inspiration graphic.  Swoon!  I would love to see what you all create.  Make sure you link up at CR84FN.
I actually have another card that I made today.  You will have to come back Monday and see what I have for you.  :)

Thanks for stopping by.  Make sure to go check out what the other designers have.  You will fall off your chair like Stella does all the time.  That poor girl needs a new chair now.  hehe



Hugs,
Heather
