CR84FN12 Colour Challenge.

I've had a busy few days with one thing and another so haven't had any time for crafting or visiting all your lovely blogs. Yesterday,I took Paige for her college interview and even though she has been accepted at another college,this was the college she really wanted to get into. The interview went very well and she was given a place as long as she gets the grades that's needed for the course,needless to say we are very happy for her.
 I got chance this afternoon to do a card for this week's colour challenge over at CR84FN Colour Challenge and as usual another fabulous inspiration board with the colours light pink,lavender and kraft.


Here's my card:


I stamped the leaf  from the Stampin'Up Going Green stamp set  in Pink Pirouette and Perfect Plum overlapping the images and stitched to some kraft card,the DP is from the SU Subtles paper pad. Lastly I added the sentiment and a bow with a cute little flower button attached.
Hopefully I'll have a bit more time over the weekend to do some more cards and LO's,I need to get two men's cards done before Monday and I really struggle with male cards. Better get my thinking cap on !!!!
