With Appreciation - C4C #82

Woohoo!! It's Saturday!!! Bring on the weekend!!! It's also Crazy 4 Challenges time and today Silke Kittman has a color challenge for us. Love me a color challenge!!! And Silke has chosen some great basic colors that you can take in many directions.

Also today, I using new My Time Made Easy sets designed by my Color Throwdown sister, Kristin Eberline. The border stamp is from Occasional Labels and the sentiment is from Sentimental Occasions. AND, if that weren't enough, I cut the label out with my Cricut and the Occasional Labels cut file! Such a classic look, don't you think? I know I'll be reaching for these sets over and over in the future. Fabulous job, Kristin!

I decided to make this card kinda Shabby Chic so I did some stitching and used some seam binding and some stick pins--which, by the way, started life with white pearls and were colored with Copic markers. And some butterflies cut with MFT Butterflies Die-namics dies (temporarily out of stock). And, I did use dark brown paper and ink--it always looks black, though! Argh!!

Okey dokey, that's it for me! Sooooo, NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)
THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C82.
