CR84FN69 {The Best Things}

Welcome back and Happy New Year (almost)!! After our short break, the CR84FN DT is back with our color challenges. 2013 is going to be a GREAT year!!! We hope you'll continue to join us. 
This month we are lucky to have a guest designer hanging out with us. Please welcome Lisa Snowdy. You can check out her blog HERE

How about this month's challenge.....Here is the beautiful graphic. You can stop by the CR84FN Blog to see all the challenge details. You have two weeks to play along (as much or as little as you'd like).

Here is my take on the colors....Raspberry, Lavender, and a neutral. I went with kraft for my neutral (shocker, right?!!!).  

I used all MFT goodies to pull my card together and a sketch from The Deconstructing Sketch. Links are all listed below (and a few through my post here).

Quick question.....I Love my Inlinkz tool! Do you find it helpful???

I thought this message was a beautiful one, to reflect on as we start a new year. I am not one for making resolutions, but I do like to reflect a little and remind myself the the Important things are. 

The stamp set is Vertical Greetings II.  I stamped MFT Premium Dye ink in Razzle berry....seriously SWOONING over this ink!!! It.Is.AWESOME.

 I used the matching Die-namics with it too. I created the polka dot strip with Darling Dots stamp set and some Grapesicle cs. 

The sweet little scalloped edge (cut from corrugated cardboard. Don't have any? run some Kraft cs through a crimper). I glittered up a Butterflies Die-namics with some Glitzy Glitter and then tied on some raspberry twine. YUM!

Be sure to hop along the DT blogs for more inspiration.
