CR84FN challenge

Oh my goodness the weather is getting cold here in the UK ... a howling wind too and some heavy showers ... I really don't want to say goodbye to summer ... such as it was
... and soon the nights will be drawing in and the days will seem shorter ... 
Thursday club starts this week too and I need to come up with a project ... though we have a lot of paper and embellishments so maybe we can just do cards this week ...


I have a fair few birthdays to prepare for this month ... and using the fabulous colour palette from CR84FN this week, I made a card for one of my lovely friends
This is the lovely inspiration picture and quote 



I found it a little hard to combine the light blue with the turquoise ... then realised that I was as usual over thinking it ... and eventually this is what I came up with


I found that pretty ribbon in my stash ... must have come from some gift wrapping ... (I keep everything) ... but it was perfect for this card ... and the heart I cut from some lovely pale burlap I got this week


I also had the lovely creamy material in my sewing stash and tore a strip off it and did a running stitch to gather it as a base for the prima flower and just peeking out is a sentiment from the WaltzingMouse stamp set Fancy Phrases ....
I don't often get time to support the wonderful challenges available so I'm glad I got to do this one ... 
Have a lovely day 

Till soon

What a great mix of textures you used on your card. Ribbon, burlap, torn material and flower make for a very dimensional card.

Terrie is correct, Ros, this is stunningly beautiful. The pop of aqua is beautiful. The chunky glitter on the petals is wonderful, the linen behind it too, and that terrific heart! Combined with the aqua bow, the trim below, pins, and lovely pearls on the heart…I think this may be my favorite Ros card!
