CR84FN24

I thought I would share the card I made this weekend for the newest CR84FN color challenge.  I love these soft pastel colors and I wanted to use more pattern paper! 



I wanted to also use my new Paper Smooches sentiment stamp set here.  I am in LOVE with this set!!  You will be seeing more of this for sure!  Please don't peek too close as I did a bit of sewing on this to shabby it up a little.  I say this as I had a very brief inservice during my Stamping Away weekend on how to sew using an ancient sewing machine I picked up for cheap.  So this was my first attempt on a card!  Yay!  Thanks Jen and Eva for being patient with me and showing me a few things!




Here's this week's inspiration photo and color scheme from CR84FN!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Oh Amy, this is so so pretty! You do shabby chic SO well! Those metallic pearls are so yummy.

Its really amazing what a little stitching can do huh? Glad you were able to learn. :)

I also love the pairing of your beautiful vintage-y feel with the sort of cutesy setiment. FAB!

I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend. :)
