CR84FN27

I went a little shabby chic for the  CR84FN27 challenge this week.  The colors are bright pink, grey and cream. I was inspired by some lovely papers from Echo Park Paper Called Love Letters from the Be Mine collection. 


The dress form is the Sizzix Die Cut dressed up with a little lace, crocheted flowers, and gems. The stamps are Hero Arts - Old Letter Writing, Lace Background and the sentiment is Layers of Colors - Happy Wishes.
The ink is Versafine Smokey Grey and StaZon Fuchsia Pink.

I love the pink, grey color combo and created two cards for the challenge this week:


The stamps are Penny Black (Cattails) B Line Designs (Bird) and Verses Rubber Stamps (Begin Each New Day)


Here are the beautiful  inspiration colors from CR84FN:
