hello

Good evening everyone!

The card I am sharing with you tonight was made for CR84FN. I hate to admit, I really struggle with these colors! I love kraft, but orange and yellow are just not me.  So, I tried to keep it simple.
I really love this scallopped border punch from ek success. It turns "blah" into elegant!  The stamps are Hero Arts. I used tea dye distress ink. Kraft paper is Bazzill, pattern paper is My Mind's Eye. Flower is Prima. Bling is Recollection. Ribbon is fancy pants.

Just a quick post tonight....see you soon!

Michele, I think you made a BEAUTIFUL card with these colors! That's why it's called a challenge ~ so you try things you wouldn't normally do. LOVE the scalloped border and the chandelier! Your flower is really FAB, too! THX for playing with us at CR84FN!
