A new day and a new challenge...


Good morning and thanks for stopping by today. I'm here to share a card that I am entering in the CR84FN46 Color Challenge and a *new to me* challenge, CAS-ual Friday's. I am coming in under the wire for the CAS challenge so I'll make this short and sweet. I used the CR84FN46 main colors of light pink, yellow & neutral with the scallop requirement for the CAS-ual Friday's challenge. Here's the graphic for the CR84FN46 Color Challenge showing our main colors and photo inspiration.


I started with a Hero Arts pre-made card and punched two MS Layered Arches borders which I accented with White Opal liquid pearls by Ranger. I painted two Maya Road chipboard hearts with Pearl Adirondack Acrylic Paint, let them dry and then added some sparkle with Pinkie Fairy Dust glitter. I die cut a banner from TCP's Easy Rosette 017 and used the small rosette as a backdrop for my Prima French White Fairytale Rose. The foam heart was die cut from Verve's From the Heart die set and the stamps are also from Verve. Black and white were the two neutrals I used and otherwise I remained true to the main colors of light pink, yellow and neutral. The scallops come into play with my punched borders and I separated them with pink polytwill ribbon for a little added sweetness. ;)

Thanks again for stopping by and I always enjoy your sweet comments!
Have an awesome day,
Lisa
