CR84FN17 - Spring is Coming

There are some beautiful spring colors for the CR84FN17 challenge this week.  I paired them with brown as my neutral to make them really pop.



Here is the gorgeous inspiration photo: 

All the stamps are Memory Box: E1711 Circle Word Background, E1713 Wonderland Butterfly, C1714 Cocoa Bean Butterfly, G1720 Birch Branch Print, F1328 First Flight, E1335 Springtime Wishes Block.
The inks are Versafine Vintage Sepia, Memento RoseBud, and Adirondack Brights Citrus.

I ended up making three cards using these colors as they were so pretty. I will share them all later this week.

For all the details on the challenge this week go to the CR84FN blog.

Check out the beautiful cards from the  CR84FN Design Team:

Deborah Frings * Sue Lelli * Meredith MacRitchie * Andrea Matthews *  Stephanie Kraft * Suzanne Czosek (me)  *  Heather Jensen * Mona Pendleton  * Lisa Somerville
