CR84FN {birthday sparkly flower}

I have been stalking the CR84FN challenges for a while now. I love the inspiration photos and the color combos, but I just never seem to find the time to squeeze them in.  I did this week! I loved the kraft, chocolate, and denim colors....they were right up my alley. 

I used all MFT products today, along with some new pretty paper. I pulled out the blue floral print from the gorgeous,new Oct.Afternoon paper, Woodland Parkand paired it with MFT Kraft, Hot Fudge and Whip cream card stock. 

I cut a two different sizes of LEAFY FLOURISHES and tucked them behind my flower. Did you know there are now 3 sizes of that pretty flourish??? I used the Medium and Original on today's card. 

A couple of other quick things to point out. My favorite PINKING EDGE DIE-NAMICS and the greeting is from BIG GREETINGS. A GREAT go-to sentiment set!

My recent order from Ellen's Store came wrapped up in this cool, thin, neutral  colored packing paper.  I don't know what you call it, but I knew I could repurpose it for something cute. So I folded up a piece to give me mulitple layers, allowing me to cut many flowers with one pass through my Vagabond. I used the new FLOWER MEDLEY DIE-NAMICS. I used two of the petals and layered them up. I also added a touch of Walnut Stain distress ink to the edges and finished the top layer of petals with some Rock Candy Glitter. The flower is all tied up with Hemp Twine and a button. 

Check out the CR84FN challenge. There's a DT call right now. I think I'm throwing my had in the ring for this one. Wish me luck!
