My last post as Guest Designer at CR84FN

Hello!  This is my last post as the Guest Designer for  CR84FN Color Challenge!
 I have had so much fun being a part of this fabulous team!  I just want to thank Mona and all the wonderful designers at CR84FN Color Challenge for inviting me to be a guest designer for the last few weeks. You all made me feel so welcome! It has been such an honor! 

Now on to this week's challenge...

And to my card...

Don't ya just love this paper! This paper is from Basic Grey's Out of Print 6x6 paper pad. 
The colors were a perfect match for this color challenge!
First, I hand stitched the zigzags with my Sew Easy tool and pink floss.
(I still haven't figured out to get the right tension on my sewing machine!)
I then made a layer of aqua ribbon, a strip of DP and a die cut (Spellbinders) of aqua card stock, and placed it in the middle of the card.
I stamped the sentiment onto die cuts, all from Verve.
The sentiment area looked a little flat, so I die cut some hearts (Verve) out of DP and the aqua cardstock. I think this gave the card more depth...a little more oomph!
Finally, I added the light coral Prima chiffon flower and 3 pink & coral buttons.

Now go check out all the other designer's beautiful creations!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
And...thanks again, CR84FN !!!
