CR84FN #41 ~ Thoughts of You

Hello blogging friends! I'm back today with a card for the latest CR84FN color challenge. They've given us the lovely color combination of steel blue, gray and yellow!!

We have a friend who recently lost her mother so this card will be going out to her. I started with a gray cardstock then added layers of fun papers from My Mind's Eye:Hattie 6x6 pad. I used a Martha Stewart vintage doily edge punch, Spellbinder's: labels 18 dies and PTI: limitless layers dies. This precious face is a stamp from Rubber Cottage, my sentiment is PTI and the tiny sprig is Stamps by Judith. I did a bit of stitching and added some pearls; they seemed to go well with the doily pattern in one of the papers and the punched edge.


I would like to thank all of you who have visited lately and left the sweetest comments. They mean the world to me and I appreciate all of you for doing so...HUGS!!! Hope you have something fun planned for your weekend. Thanks for stopping by today ~Lisa

I know say it over and over and over, but I just love the way you work with patterned papers. You have a knack. Love the doilies! And I think I need to get me those Labels 18 dies.
