CR84FN #54 ~ Warm Wishes!

Hello bloggy friends! I'm back today with an entry for the CR84FN challenge ~ mint, blue and neutral. I was inspired by the overall softness of the inspiration photo and set out to make a slightly vintage soft card.

I started my card with two DPs containing the challenge colors. The first is from Crate Paper and the second is a scrap of a postal paper I picked up ages ago. Next I layered on a doily and a die cut (paper MME, die PTI). My little tag is stamped with a Northwoods sentiment and a flourish from Magenta. My sweet tiny bird and the teeeny tiny leaves are by Impression Obsession. This was accented with a PTI postage stamp die cut, buttons and ruffly ribbon from my stash. I used a warm brown chalk ink to soften the edges of the card and elements. 

Thanks for popping in today ~Lisa
