CR84FN #53 ~ Sending a Hug!

Hello and happy Wednesday! Where has the time gone; the days seem to be flying by. I almost forgot my entry for the CR84FN challenge! When I saw the colors of pink, aqua and neutral I knew just the paper I wanted to use as my jumping off point. This sweet floral print from MME: howdy doody collection! I just love that name ~ hee!! All of the pretty flowers in the photo were my inspiration.

I pulled the coordinating polka dot paper and used a PTI fillable frames to die cut it. I layered a Spellbinders: labels 18 die cut to this holding my sentiment and a pretty peony from PTI. My "sending a hug" sentiment is generic so to speak, and will make this card suitable for many different occasions. I found this beautiful aqua trim at the stamping convention along with these little roses ~ aren't they sweet!  My tiny tag is also stamped with a pretty peony. A few buttons and pins complete the picture. Hope you like it!
Have a delightful day ~Lisa

Wow Lisa, you have really captured the inspiration photo in your card! Awesome collection of patterned paper, laces, roses and tags! I'm sure the recipient will consider themselves "hugged!"

Such a beautiful card. I love how you incorporated those soft colors into a very cheery card. I just posted my first dynamic duo card, and didn't realize that you are part of the brains behind that new site. So, I just wanted to stop by and say 'hi'. I think your new challenge is going to be such fun. What a great idea.

Such pretty papers and trim, Lisa! I know what you mean about time flying by. This is a very busy season for me, with school winding down and the kids having lots of things to do / attend. I don't feel I've had much time to craft. :( Everything has to be done in a 'mechanical' kind of way for the DTs. Boo hooo! Good thing I've got a system in place. LOL Hugs!
