March Guest Designer......

I received an email last week off the very talented designer Mona Pendleton asking if I would like to be March Guest Designer for CR84FN. I love this colour challenge blog,the colours are always so pretty with a fabulous photo inspiration board and a great quote. I felt very honoured to be asked and of course I said 'YES' straight away.
Look at this week's gorgeous colours:

Here's my card:


I used Anna Griffin papers and made the rosette using a Tim Holtz Alteration Die adding a flower and button to the centre. The kraft envelope is from Maya Road and I painted the edges with white acrylic paint.
I hope you all feel inspired by this week's colours and join in the fun and for even more inspiration take a look at what all the talented designers have created this week.



Can't wait to see all your wonderful creations,have a great Sunday !!!

Congratulations Deb, I was just looking at my list of blogs to say hello to and just thought of you, and you're on CR84FN team!! Yay for you, so well deserved.

I love what you've done with this weeks colours, I struggle with the citrus end, but you made it look so easy! All the lacy scallops and the rosette are perfect together, a beautiful card! xx

Deb.. Glad you are joining us this month as a guest designer. Beautiful card. Love the kraft envelope and the design.

Lisa said...

such sweet colours and what a gorgeous card. question: how do you deliver these very dimensional cards - surely they are too chunky for an envelope and even if you used an envelope, they would be crushed in the post. do you hand deliver them without a cover?
