Favorite Colors with CR84FN Color Challenge

Friday, March 4, 2011

Hey, everyone!! Last minute creation, here. Not because this took me so long...but because I really decided at the last minute that I still had enough time to get it done. The colors were so lovely this week at Mona's CR84FN Color Challenge...
These are a few of my most favorite! I took another look at Guest Designer, Stella's, card yesterday and said, "That's it...I'm doin' it!!!" Although, one thing I really loved about her card was all the clean white...with those colors just popping off of it...mine did NOT turn out very clean OR very white!!
A couple at church has finally had their brand new baby girl (first baby)! So I thought these colors would be perfect for that occasion! The style is all feminine and frilly! I used my smallest Papertrey heart die and some pale, pale pink chiffon fabric to cut out about a dozen little hearts. Then I strung them all together with a needle and thread to create this flower...

I actually liked it better before I added the paper flower to the center--it flattened an otherwise really "fluffy" and dimensional little flower! I also used some white crepe paper to create a pretty ruffle--I stretched out the bottom edge as much as I could without tearing it to give it a little softer, fabric feel. My little sprig of new leaves from Etsy is going was the only one they had. I also added my favorite Cabbage Rose Ribbon from Marilyn on Etsy...some Papertrey stars and a chipboard piece (Thickers)...

The paper is from The Paper Studio and My Mind's Eye. The Little sentiment is from Papertrey's Star Prints. Oh, yeah, I used my Papertrey edgers also!

Hope you like this girly little creation! There are so many beautiful entries this week! And the Design Team really out-did themselves!! It's definitely worth a peek!!

Thanks so much for stopping!!
