Pink Houses For You and Me - CR84FN9

I know you want to sing along...

Oh but ain't that America for you and me

Ain't that America we're something to see baby
Ain't that America, home of the free
Little pink houses for you and me

I have some exciting news and today I can finally share with you that I've joined the CR84FN Challenge Team! I'm excited to be working with Mona and the other talented Design Team Members, we'd love to have you play along!

I had something different in mind when working with this weeks colors, okay I actually started two different cards, and scrapped them both and went in a totally different direction and ended up with this card. I love the way the BG colors work perfectly with the piece of Basic Grey Curio paper that I used under my stamped image panel.  Cool, huh!

The background is created by morphing the Smackin' Acetate Technique, as I spritzed my Acetate with some Ranger Perfect Pearls and instead of using Glossy card stock I used Matte.  I stamped the beautiful image from The Outpost plate by Artistic Outpost in Black Archival and added the "pink" to my house with marker.

Here's this weeks color challenge, we'd love for you to play along with us at CR84FN, you can find all the details here on how to enter. If you upload to any online gallery please use keyword CR84FN9 so we can find your creations!

Okay, Lisa, Now I won't be able to get that song out of my head! But every time I sing it I will think about your STRIKING card! I just LOVE the sunset you created and the description of the technique you used! Just BEAUTIFUL!

Thank you Lisa for all your support with the CR84FN challenge and for joining the DT! I admire your creative style and always seem to put an "artsy spin" on things. This card is so pretty! Love the gorgeous colors on the horizon and the little pink house too :)

Congratulations! I love JCM and was so disappointed to see they are getting divorced. He's great in concert!

Very pretty card, love the background.

Congratulations on joining this DT, Lisa! And, YES, now that song is stuck in my head. I have wanted to know the rest of the words...is it that we have the freedom to have little pink painted houses in America? Anyway,
This looks AWESOME! I really love the sky. It looks great. Does that tree come with the house stamp? That is one awesome tree. So much life and detail in it.

Thanks for sharing! And, have a blessed New Year!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
