Sew Lovely/CR84FN 15

I am so happy when a card turns out great and fast.  This one came together pretty quick for me...compared to what it normally takes.  Sometimes it takes me hours, and most of that time is spent deciding on what stamps to use and what paper.  The rest is the easy part.

It is time for another color challenge at CR84FN.  We have a wonderful color combo for you to try.  Wait, every week is a great color combo.  hehe

I won this cute set called Sew Lovely by Lawn Fawn from the sweet Kim Duran at Paper Loves Glue.  Stop by and check out her fabulous blog.  I also used some paper from the PTI stack called Everyday Blessings that my sweet blog friend Stephanie Muzzlin sent me, along with some other goodies.  Man, I have some wonderful blog friends.  Love ya both and thank you so much.
I know it is hard to tell in the picture, but the top paper from PTI, the colors are Aqua Mist and Spring Moss.  It is actually Exact to the colors in the inspiration photo IRL.  One of my light tent bulbs went out/broke and I replaced it with something I got at Lowe's and it just doesn't give off the same color.  I need to break down and just order a few. 
I used my Beaded Ovals from SB for the first time.  I inked the outer beads in Tim Holtz distress ink Tumbled Glass and the inside in Fine Linen and Vintage Photo.  I love how it gives the image a pretty glow.
Make sure you stop by to see what the other girls have for you.
