Sweet Day

I'm not quite sure what rock I've been living under, I don't know why I haven't ever played along with the CR84FN Color Challenge before! I love color challenges.

The combo for this week has a soft vintage feel.

Still itching to use the Strawberry Patch set, and thought it would be fun to try it out in these softer colors.

I started by stamping the large strawberry cluster in Crumb Cake ink. The strawberries and flower centers were stamped in Pink Pirouette, and the leaves in Crumb Cake. To make the solid leaves a little lighter than the outline, I stamped them off on scrap paper before stamping them on my project. A strip of cardstock that had been stamped with the medium gingham from Gingham & Co. was added to the bottom.

I added a sentiment stamped onto the medium banner from the Banner Trio Die. These little cuties are kind of addictive. Finished it off with a snippet of lace and a button.

Really cute! I love how versatile this set is, this card looks so different from the one I shared yesterday.

I had fun playing along with the CR84FN color challenge for this week and look forward to the new one tomorrow! Hope your day is great!
