Pretty in pink (and red) – CR84FN33/ WM61

Hi all
In among all the weekend chores and ongoing decorating in our bedroom (coming along v nicely!), I did manage to do a spot of card making.
Yay! Though my mojo was struggling for a while, after the mammoth stepper card session on Saturday!

Here’s the gorgeous colour palette and inspiration photos for this fortnight’s CR84FN challenge – CR84FN#33 which I was inspired by:

And I’ll also be entering this one into the current Wee Memories challenge #61 – summertime.

I made my card for a dear friend’s birthday coming up – a perfect summery celebration 😉
I used the fab butterfly stamped image which is from a set by Little Claire Designs ‘Butterfly Tree‘.
My fab bloggy friend Pauline at Craft Obsession recently got this set and shared a couple of images with me – love! Thanks Pauline!

Here’s my summery treat…

I stamped and heat embossed my card blank in clear embossing powder using
Hero Arts ‘Designer Background – Woodgrain (S5208)‘ .
A couple of patterned papers (My Mind’s Eye ‘Lime Twist – Happy Go Lucky’ and October Afternoon ‘The Thrift Shop’) are layered and I coloured and fussy cut the exotic butterflies image. It’s popped up of foam pads for lots of fluttery butterfly dimension.


A wrap of pink Divine Twine from The Ribbon Girl has a mini patterned tag greeting, and a super-cute rose.
I made the rose from Fimo polymer clay using this flower mould from Mold Muse, and gave it a delicate sheen (which doesn’t really show up in my pic!) with Fimo Gloss varnish.
Can’t get over how fab it is making these embellishments.
