CR84FN40 Week 2 Color Challenge

Hi there and welcome! I am entering today's card in my first ever CR84FN Color Challenge and this week  we are playing with the pretty color combo of red, brown and kraft. Take a look at our inspiration for this challenge.

I've been admiring this challenge for awhile and finally mustered up the courage to enter. There is major talent behind the scenes and from those who enter the challenge so it is a bit daunting. This week "sparked" my interest because Mona's husband, Scott, shared a wonderful quote from the late Steve Jobs. I decided to make this card for my DH to let him know just how much he means to me. My life wouldn't be complete without him and I thank God for my husband and the precious time He has given us. I can't imagine what the Jobs family must be going through right now, but I do hope they are comforted by the many prayers that have gone up on their behalf. Steve Jobs was a creative genius and he brought us joy through his amazing creations. He was a true pioneer in every way and we have been blessed by his presence here. 

I should note that I am also entering this card in the Viva la Verve Week 3 Challenge over at SCS. My card today used Maureen's awesome sketch which you can view here if you like. This is a busy week and needed to make this one do double time.

Thanks for stopping by today!
