CR84FN36, Week 2 -- Ticket to My Heart

If you are looking for my Taylored Expressions August Key Ingredients post, please scroll down or click HERE... Thank you!!


Hello! It's week 2 for the current CR84FN Challenge! If you haven't played along yet, you have just under another week to play in CR84FN36. Our color palette is Yellow, Kraft and Neutral. The lovely photos in the graphic above are courtesy of Martha Stewart.


I had a little time this morning, so I decided to create something for fun (that's what this challenge is all about :)). Sabrina started school this week, and while I know that's a good thing for her, I still miss having her at home with me. This card is for my sweet girl...

I pulled out some of My Favorite Things goodies and got to playing! I started by stamping, coloring and cutting out the sweet girl from PI - Sunflower Girl. For my sentiment, I layered a couple of tickets that I created using Die-namics Just the Ticket and stamp set. Instead of stamping the heart from the stamp set, I added a rhinestone heart to the ticket as well as a few yellow gold (though they photographed darker) rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.

For sketch inspiration, I used this week's My Favorite Things WSC Getting Sketchy #33 from My Favorite Things. All the challenge details can be found HERE:
