CR84FN68 WK#2

Hey everyone - hope you're all enjoying your weekend so far! I'm back with my second card for week two of CR84FN#68! We are playing with the beautiful colour combo of Burgundy, Gray and Cream...
Although my thoughts are mostly on making Christmas cards, my sisters birthday is on Jan 8th so I'm trying to make sure I have something lovely made especially for her well in advance!

CR84FN#68 wk#2

I used the Vintage Music stamp from The Alley Way Stamps to create the sheet music background and then stamped the beautiful PTI leaf flourish in burgundy ink over the top.  


The label is created using Waltzingmouse's 'French Country' label and the sentiment is stamped in London Fog grey ink with words from the 'Compact Family' Set.


I used Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms dies to create fabric flowers using Burgundy felt - I simply added a lovely creamy pearl to the centre to finish each one.  I added some sheer wired chiffon ribbon alond the bottom of the card onto which I layered a grey cardstock border cut using Spellbinders Persian Accents die, some burgundy velvet ric rac, pearl flourish and a pearl stick pin.


Enjoy the rest of your weekend! We are going to finish decorating our sitting room for Christmas :)
