Cupcake Creations-CR84FN Color Challenge

One of my favourite blogs to visit is Mona Pendletons Cupcake Creations,she really inspires me with her beautiful projects and the gorgeous soft colours she uses. A couple months ago Mona started a colour challenge which was so popular that it now has it's own challenge blog with it's very own design team for even more inspiration!
The new colour challenge blog is called CR84FN Color Challenge and here is this weeks inspiration board and colours.


 The base paper is SU So Saffron DSP edged with Antique Linen Distress Ink,I tore a rectangle from the Making Memories shaped DP to make a frame,rolled the edges and inked them with Distress Ink,I then stitched a zig-zag stitch around the torn frame. Underneath the frame I used Graphic 45 Baby 2 Bride collection which is a soft peach DP and tucked a bit of lace to just peek out of the bottom of the frame. The flowers and leaves are from a selection of different Prima ranges.



I really enjoyed doing this LO especially using all those gorgeous flowers and I adore this photo of Paige when she was a few days old.
Thanks for taking the time to look and thank you for all the lovely comments you leave me,I really appreciate it.It took months for Libby to convince me into starting a blog which I started nearly 12 months ago now,but so glad I did.I've made some lovely blog friends and learnt so much from you all so a big thank you to everyone.

Love
xxxxDebxxxx
