CR84FN #68


Time for another B-E-A-U-tiful CR84FN color challenge! But before we get to the colors, we just want to let all our loyal CR84FN followers know that this is the last post before we go on a holiday hiatus - CR84FN will return in all it's glory on Sunday, December 30th for CR84FN69.

But for the next two weeks, we have these fabulous colors to play with..


I absolutely LOVE this color combo - I really do. It is one of my favs to date. 

Given the impending holidays, poinsettias seemed to fit the bill for the burgundy in the palette. 


I used the Christmas poinsettias die from Papertrey Ink to create a partial die cut in cream cardstock. Then I stamped a few poinsettias on the cardstock, stamping one in place of the die cut. The cream cardstock was dry embossed with the linen impression plate from Papertrey Ink. I then clear embossed a background on a dark grey cardstock base and attached the cream cardstock.

Make sure to check out what eye candy awaits at the blogs of the other DT members;




Thanks so much for stopping by!
