CR84FN 38

It is time for a new color challenge at CR84FN.  I have to say that this was not my favorite color combination when I first saw the graphic.  BUT, when I pulled out my new MME paper and and PTI stamps...it came together perfectly and I absolutely LOVE it!  I don't think I have liked a card as much as I do this one in a long time.  I knew what papers and stamps I wanted to use when I sat down and it just worked.  Don't ya love it when that happens?  I sure do!


Do you see that pretty lace?  My sweet blog friend Stella sent that to me along with a beautiful card.  I thought when I put the dress form die cut on the Mat Stack label that it just got lost so I punched out a piece of black cardstock and placed it in the center.  It made the image and hand cut sentiment stand out a lot better.  Do you agree?




Another amazing quote Scott found.  I love these things.  They all seem so true for me.

Wow, Heather, what a fabulous card! You're right about the black circle. It totally focuses your eye right there on the dress form. Love all the papers you used and that lace and ribbon (and, esp the marvy bow!) tie it all together perfectly. Love it!!! ~Hugs! {only 20 more days!}
