CR84FN 52

Well, hello.  It's hard to believe I haven't posted in nearly two weeks.  Life has been busy, but last night I just needed to make something pretty.   What spoke to me were the lovely colors of CR84FN52 - tan, cream, and medium pink. 

These cards are far from what I originally envisioned.  Different flowers, different card base, far more pink than I had planned.  I'm happy with how they turned out, though. 



The main panel is PTI vintage cream with a narrowly masked edge and gently sponged pink on the inside.  The sponging is hard to see in the photos, but it's one of my favorite details of these cards.  I think it adds such a soft and pretty touch.  The branch is a Memory Box die (love it!) cut out of PTI kraft.  Flowers are Recollections, and they're not nearly as dark as they look in the picture.  Card base is PTI sweet blush.

Beautiful Inspiration:

Thanks for visiting me today.
