And today's color challenge over at CR84FN::::  brown, red and tourquoise.


I cut layers of flowers out from a vintage hymnal and painted each one with barn red paint.   Antiqued and distressed each petal then layered them with lots of foam dots inbetween layers so they POP off the card.


Thinking of you is cut out of some aqua color paper that I distressed with my beloved TIM HOLTZ distressing ink in walnut.


A couple of flourishes are stamped in black and added to the backround.  Tourquoise and brown dotted grograin ribbom.

Just happened upon your blog! By reading some of your posts, could your present be a Sizzix or CriCutter (I think that's the name??!!) Anyway, it was fun reading your post - I could feel your excitement. I'm a new follower - I also like raising chickens (although at the moment I am chickless!)
