cr84fn # 33

Good afternoon all!
First of all can I shout from the rooftops to tell you all I got A TERRIFIC TOP 3 place in last weeks challenge at CR84FN I am so chuffed. As soon as I recieve my badge I`ll put it at the top of my sidebar..

The colours for this fortnights challenge at CR84FN are red,pinkand a neutral. Now red and pink are colours I would never normally put together and I did struggle to come up with something I wanted to admit to making lol. My first attempt went straight into the bin but that was mainly down to not having any mojo on monday. How typical, I take a week off work and my mojo goes on holiday.
Yesterday was completely different. I took a different approach and within minutes came up with this one, much, much better than the first.
I`ve kept it CAS as this seems to be my preferred style at the moment.
A6 white card base.
Panel cut slightly smaller than card, I`ve embossed lines on one side of panel with score board.
The DP is a from my snippet box and is by Pink Petticoat from the His/ Hers papers
The image is by Chocolate Baroque Fresh Florals set, coloured with a mix of watercolour pencils and promarkers then cut out with a nestie oval.
The sentiment is from Flourishes Orchids set, stamped in Versafine Black and cut out with a nestie circle.
I`ve added a pink gingham ribbon and bow.
The panel is added using foam pads.

I`m being extremely good just lately and going straight to my snippet box for papers rather than cutting into new sheets or printing more off. Not that it`s making much of a hole in the amount of snippets I have but every little helps and I`m determined not to buy new papers for a while (until I see something that I just can`t live without lol)

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
