Mona's challenge this week is truely inspiring. The combination of blues ... in both a smokey and greenish hue ... are just gorgeous. And paired with grey ... they calm me. I am not a "blue" person, in fact I find it a very difficult color to warm up to. But Mona and her Design Team at CR84FN Color Challenge have given all the direction I need to share this with you today ... and the quote always touches my heart.
I began with a card of Very Vanilla cardstock layered with patterned papers from my scraps. A piece of lace, some stitching, and distressing the edges create a shabby look. Distressing Essentials is my tool of choice while the Scallop Punch border adds another attractive detail.
The ribbon I've have forever ... waiting it's turn to be in the spotlight. Coupled with a regal pearl and silver bead pin ... a tag stamped in Basic Grey Classic ink with a flourished greeting from the All Holidays stamp set ... and a sweet flower button from the Subtles Collection ... this ribbon is elegantly perched on the top of the world.
I hope you haven't grown tired of my handmade flowers. I just love to make them. This one is done in a cool, crisp shade of Whisper White ... the perfect compliment to blue and grey. With the sparkle of a Rhinestone Jewel center ... and resting on the softness of velvet white leaves ... this flower takes center stage, looking like it would settle for nothing less.
I hope you enjoyed your visit, I'm so glad you took the time to stop by....good night.
