CR84FN21 & Card Patterns #108


Hi friends!  I've got another last minute challenge entry tonight!  I am loving these colors and especially the inspiration photos from CR84FN this week.  I paired them with the current sketch at Card Patterns, which I turned on its side.


I love PTI's Distressed Dots patterned paper and hadn't used it in a while, so that was the first thing I decided to use on this card.  I cut a paper doily in half and inked it to match the Rustic Cream card base and give it a shabby look.

A Scarlet Jewel doily is layered with the Fillable Frames #10 label, stamped with a sentiment from Fillable Frames #4.

The paper roses from Michaels had leaves that weren't quite the shade of green I needed for this color challenge, so I peeled the leaf layer off and traced it onto Simply Chartreuse cardstock, cut it out, crumpled it up a little, then adhered the leaves behind the roses.

Some wrinkled seam binding and a few garnet pearls add the finishing touches.

All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless noted
Cardstock:  Rustic Cream, Scarlet Jewel, Simply Chartreuse
Patterned Paper:  Distressed Dots 
Stamps:  Fillable Frames #4 & #10
Ink:  Bravo Burgundy (Stampin' Up!), Antique Linen (Ranger)
Tools:  Fillable Frames #10 die, Doily Details die, Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers)
Accessories:  Scarlet Jewel ribbon, doily (Wilton), paper roses (Michaels), pearls (Queen & Co.), seam binding, thread

I'd better link this up before time runs out!  I hope you all have a great weekend planned.  Thanks for stopping by!
