Celebrate the good things..CR84FN Challenge # 12

Hey Everyone!!

I have been so inspired with the color goodies over at CR84FN that I just had to make a card for this week's challenge! And since it is one of my dearest friends' birthdays on Thursday..I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone ;)

This week's challenge was to use Kraft, Lavender and Light Pink..colors that my friend Jennie will absolutely love!

And with that inspiration..I created this:

I made my card base out of PTI's Kraft CS along with their Lavender Moon CS and some scrap DP from my bin (Cream is House of 3 and Pink is Imaginisce, I believe). The butterfly and heart where made from my "Love Lives Here" die collection from PTI while the sentiment is from the dollar bin at Michaels ;)

And of course I just had to use some of my Prima pearls..I love these accents with the rosettes..so beautiful!

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from PTI using Plum Pudding ink that states, " May your birthday be a joyful celebration of all that you are and all you dream to be" .. *sigh* .. just perfect!

And since I'm huge on packaging lately..I couldn't give this card away without pretty-ing up the envelope! I glued down a paper doily, adhered a Prima rose and tied some PTI twine around before addressing it to the recipient!! So excited to give this to her!!

Thank you so much for spending some time with me today..have a great Tuesday and, as always, Happy Crafting!!
