CR84FN47 - Pink, Red and Light Blue

Greetings! The weekend is upon us. Yeah! Feeling a bit better this evening, and hoping the weekend will make a world of difference. Thanks for all the well wishes sent my way. I decided to make a card for the current challenge at CR84FN. As shown in the inspiration montage above, we are to use pink, red and light blue and of course neutrals. My first thought was to grab a light aqua paper and ribbon, but I decided to challenge myself to really try to go with a more pure light blue, a color I don't often reach for. My second thought was that these colors work well for a Valentine, so that is the direction I chose. On a textured white card base, I layered pink and red baker's twine and vintage light blue ribbon. I then layered on a trimmed pink doily and a white one. I chose a sweet image from clip art from Crafty Individuals and matted it on red and light blue card stock. Paper flowers and rhinestones by Martha Stewart frame the image. I added a fluffy light blue bow to the left of the image and stamped a sentiment by Rubber Stampede onto a tag I found in my stash. Tag was distressed with Barn Red Distress ink and embellished with light blue Liquid Pearls. Thanks so much for dropping by. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Yvonne
