CR84FN challenge card

Happy Tues yall!!~
WOW!! we had alot of ice and snow this am!! Woke up to everything ice covered!!  I couldnt even open my truck doors.   It was pretty but I am really glad I didnt have to go out in it.   It is snowing now and just very wintry outside and serene.   I did snap a few closeups of the ice and really like the way they turned out, hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm may have to do a scrapbook page of them!!  LOLSo it is another week which means another color challenge over at cr84fn.  And this weeks colors are gorgeous together!!
I bought this great stampendous stamp awhile ago and thought it would be perfect for the sentiment on this card with these wonderful colors.

I cut and painted a chipboard frame grey, then stamped around it with Tim Holtz's black distressing ink.  Added a bit of chalk around the edges.   The violet color is cardstock added to the frame with the sentiment on it, and a bit of Martha Stewarts white ink dry brushed around to soften the edges a bit.

I bought a pkg of asst chipboards and ephemera from K and Company and love them all!! so the butterfly and roses are from that set. 

Using pink glitter stickles paint by the one and only TIM HOLTZ I added swirls on the bottom corner and a bit of sheer lt pink ribbon. 

I am happy with this card and will put it for sale in my etsy shoppe. 

And here are the icy pics I took earlier today. 

Love these little blue berries on our hedges out front. 

The pines look pretty as ever with their icy embellishes!! 

I have some pork strips in the crock pot along with some chunked taters, onions and fresh broccoli and it smells so yummy in the house!! Me and the boys want to surprise daddy with a nice big supper.  Maybe I will also whip up some gravy with the crock pot juices and I need to make a cheesecake for him too.   Hope yall have a wonderful night I will be back soon with somemore goodies I am trying to finish up this afternoon.
