CR84FN36

Isn't this pretty? I always feel inspired by CR84FN's color collages, even when I can't find the time to enter a card in their challenge. Color is what thrills me the most about papercrafting, so the appeal makes sense to me. :-) Here is challenge #36:


And here's my card:


And the inside (the kraft layer is embossed):


I chose cream for my neutral. Kind of out of my usual style--I mean, look at all that white space (or should I say yellow and cream space?)! For me, this is CAS. It still took me 17 hours to make, LOL! I made this for the neighbors across the street who recently had a baby girl, Louisa Marie. She's a doll. :-)

Supplies
Stamps: PTI--Sweet Baby and Inside & Out: Baby
Paper: PTI--Vintage Cream, Kraft, Lemon Tart, Father Knows Best pp
Ink: Memento--Rich Cocoa; E.P.--Filigree Clear
Other: Dies--PTI--Sweet Baby and Ribbon Tails; Embossing Plate--Spellbinders; Button--PTI Lemon Tart; Floss--DMC Ecru; Border Punch--EK Success
