Eternity - CR84FN30

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you've been enjoying the holiday weekend!  Before I get to this weeks CR84FN colors, I'd like to wish my fellow DT member Deb, a wonderful birthday! Her birthday falls between challenges - so I'm taking the opportunity today so send birthday wishes her way!  Be sure to stop by and wish her a Wonderful Birthday week!  Thanks to the many players who joined us for last weeks colors - this weeks challenge is Light Yellow, Light Blue and Kraft.  My first thought was to create a Baby card, but of course when I sat down to create, I went in a totally different direction!

While working in the ODBD Booth last weekend in Milwaukee, I picked up a few new images/dies and of course more Zva Pearls, so before putting them away, I inked them up for today's challenge.  Earlier this weeks I posted a You Tube Video on using Spellbinders Blossom 3 Dies and Heartfelt Creations Daisy Dies to create a Paper Rose.  This time I used the smallest flower from the Blossom 3 Die along with the smallest Daisy Die, to create my flowers.  (Note the flowers are lighter IRL, we've been having a lot of rain and gloomy weather, so I had to brighten up the photo a bit)


Click to Enlarge
The quote and flourishes are both from Our Daily Bread Designs Eternity set, stamped in Ranger Coffee Archival on Kraft Card Stock, then die cut with Spellbinders Labels Eighteen.  I created a Frame with the largest two dies, then added the stamped quote on dimensionals.  The Blossoms are cut from Bashful Blue and Banana card stock.
