Such sad news...

Thanks so much to all of you for participating in our color challenges here at CR84FN!
Sadly, this will be our last one!

Mona has decided to end this challenge. Her words... 
"It is rather simple, I just decided to end the challenge. .... I'm just ready for change and wanted to make room to explore other opportunities."

So with great sadness...this is our last week. 
I was so honored to be a part of this great team. Mona and my teammates are all so talented and inspiring and such a nice group of girls! I am going to miss them terribly!

So my last card is here:

 I used 2 different stamp sets. The flower stems and vase are flowers2share (Stamps of Life) and the fun sentiment is Treasured Words (Verve). Before I stamped the flowers, I misted the card base a little bit with Mister Huey's Calico White. The pretty little posies are made with a Rolled Rose die(MFT) and colored the stems with a Distress Marker. The vase has been paper pieced. I added some fun gems to the centers of the word Bloom.

Please visit  our last CR84FN Color Challenge and check out all of the beautiful cards from the other design team members!
And give them some love, because we are all truly sad.

Please continue to visit us in blogland!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Lovely card Mackie, the ink splatters add so much texture, and I love the rolled flowers in their vases.

Oh Mackie - this is is simply fabulous! I love the soft misted background and the pretty paper roses. Love the way you've coloured the sentiment too! Just fab! It's been fun working on the CR84FN team together - and I'm sure I'll see you again soon! x
