Create for Fun

So don't laugh, I am not big into acronyms or figuring out what they actually stand for, and whenever I want to quote the CR84FN blog I always say the letters!!!!  Ok, so you are all laughing, fine, go ahead!  Well, my friend Lisa helped me out and let me in on the secret, so now at least I can sound a little more intelligent and less cryptic!


I am submitting a second card for their wonderful colour challenge of Light Blue, Turquoise and Neutral.
Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah; My Mind's Eye
Ink: Memento; Copics
Stamps: PTI (Wonderful Words Addition; Up, Up & Away)
Other: EK Success Scalloped Border punch; Cuttlebug embossing folder; Dimensional Squares; PTI dies

I used my trusted friend's PTI Cloud die and die cut two clouds out of my neutral (white) cardstock and then ran it through the cutlebug for some texture.  I put some turquoise patterned paper behind it.  The little hot air balloon and scalloped border were coloured with copics.  I then die cut the "YOU" from the same patterned paper and the card was done.  The white panel is raised with some dimensional squares, (my new favourite thing to do)!

Just short and sweet today!  Thank you for visiting and have an awesome day!
