CR84FN Color Challenge Still Fuelling My Creativity.

I am thoroughly enjoying myself whilst dabbling with the various crafting challenges I have come across recently.  The following card is my latest entry in the CR84FN Color Challenge.  I figure as long as I am having fun, why not?  I thought the colors of this week's challenge where quite unusual combined, albeit lovely, and not often ones that I would personally team up, but would use a fair bit of separately.  So this week was an interesting stretch which certainly did spark my creative spirit as is the aim of this beautiful game, right?  *wink*

Thanks so much for popping by and having a look at my latest CR84FN Color Challenge card:

  • Ink:  Versafine Sienna, Brilliance Galaxy Gold, Distress Ink in Mustard Seed, Brushed Corduroy

This tag would have worked so nicely for PTI's Frame on a Tag challenge! I love those buttons and lace with the frame around the beautiful, poetic sentiment. Very dreamy and romantic.

hi Jen,
atlast I have been able to leave this comment, having issues with my internet service, lots of fun :(. Yes, we are still all roasting in Sydney, I normally love th heat but at all I can say is bring on the cooler weather.

I absolutely love your card, everything has come together perfectly. All the details are just amazaing.

On my card the bird has been cut out from patterned paper, I loved the bird and just had to use it on my card.

Anyway, happy crafting in Sydney's heat, it has to cool down soon
