CCMC-188 Love & Laughter

Oh my…I really LOVED the sketch this week for Create with Connie and Mary's Thursday Challenge!  Even though it is square and I did a rectangle…it shows you how versatile the sketch really is!



I love combining Basic Black and Daffodil Delight…such a CRISP color combination, especially when put with Whisper White!



I started with the base of Daffodil Delight and layered on Basic Black.  I ran the Whisper White thru the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder.  I cut the large scallop circle from Scallop Duo Die out of Daffodil Delight.  I placed the banner layer between the scallop circle and the focal element, then added Pearls around the scallops and Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon at the top of the black banner layer. 


The cake was stamped with Basic Black on Whisper White and punched with the 2 1/2 Circle Punch.  I added a Boho Blossoms flower along the top, with a Black mini brad in the center.  The circle is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals on the front of the card!


I LOVE this card!  Toot!  Toot!  lol!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Thursday Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!  Lots of great ideas with this sketch!  Then grab your stamps and play along!  And…have you signed up for the Occasions Edition 2012 yet?  It's not too late to join!  The set I used is one of our featured stamp sets this week!  Join us!  You still have access to all the projects we've done so far…and I must say they have been AWESOME!

Love it!  I'm a huge fan of the black, white & daffodil combination also.  It's just so crisp & bright.  Not to mention, it just makes you want to smile when you see it.

Such an elegant color combination Connie!  All the details are the perfect elements for a wedding card–love the pearls and the sweet boho flower.  Fabulous job with the sketch!
