CCMC-OCC5 Send Me Soaring

We have a FUN color challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary Occasions Edition 2012 for our subscribers!  They can enter to win one of two FREE subscriptions to the next edition of Create with Connie and Mary just by playing along!  It's not too late for you to play along, too!  We are entering into our sixth week, but you'll still have access to ALL the projects we've done so far…and our website stays up a YEAR after the session has ended!  So…what are you waiting for?  Join today!



Aren't the colors of Soft Suede, Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder so nice and soothing?  Very pretty!  I thought of the sky when I first saw this color challenge…so I used Send Me Soaring stamp set.  Hopefully we'll be seeing some of those March winds  (and milder temperatures!) soon in Ohio!



I started with a base of Wisteria Wonder.  I added Wisteria Wonder Patterns Designer Paper to the Whisper White layer, and added a Dotted Scallop Border of Pool Party under the DSP.  I wrapped some Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon around and tied a knot.  I stamped the kites on Whisper White with all three colors, and added a Rhinestone Jewel at the base of the kite where it meets the string (hides the fact that I didn't get the string quite in the right place!  lol)  I made a "ground" of Pool Party and stamped some clouds in Pool Party, too.  Finally, I stamped the greeting in Soft Suede and punched with the 1" Circle punch and layered on the 1 3/8" punched circle of Pool Party cardstock.


Make sure to check what the rest of the Design Team did with this challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend.  I have some major decisions to make on my cabinets…we are down to the wire to order!
