Parisian CR84FN...

Hi again!

Third post in one day... when it rains it pours lol! I really wanted to play along with this week's CR84FN colour challenge - I loved this week's inspiration:


So pretty!! I combined the colours with the sketch over at CPS this week and came up with this:



The photo's not great because I had to take it at night so kitchen bench light was the best I could manage... oh for a light box!! I used Blushing Bride as my light pink (this is my favourite pink - so soft and pretty). The DSP is a mixture of Newsprint and Love Letter. I stamped the main image with Stazon and the sentiment (from Sincere Salutations) underneath then stamped over the top with Baroque Motifs using Blushing Bride ink. I added some ribbon, a button and some pearls, as well as some butterflies cut with the new Beautiful Butterflies Embosslits die.

I'm off to sleep now - have a great day/afternoon/evening... wherever you are!
