CR84FN Color Challenge - July 16 , 2011 Yellow, Pink, Bright Pink - CELEBRATE



I'm getting alot done with my youngling's away (please forgive me the Star Wars expression, but it's permanently embedded in my brain - Thanks YODA)!!  What a great color combination for this challenge - looks like summer for sure - maybe some cool cocktails?!  We are in the middle of a heat wave here in the midwest so I'm not tempted to stay outdoors for long periods.   I'm out long enough to please the dog and my garden - everything looks so wilted.  I hope my beautiful flowers return soon - for now I will have to settle for Mona's sweetie's photos!
I finally got my hands on some rayon seam binding so I got to make a fabulous bow.  None of the fabric stores around here carry this stuff so I had to let my fingers do the walking on line.  It comes in so many great colors it was hard to decide.  I love all the great names like Elegant Peacock Blue, Mimosa Yellow and Tobacco Brown.  It's hard to pick out colors without actually seeing the product.  I got lucky that I picked this great dark pink called Summer Rose, it is the perfect Dark Pink for this card.  I hope you like it!
