CCMC-SUM04 Week 4 Challenge

Wow, we are at the end of Week 4 of the Create with Connie and Mary Summer Edition!  We are having SO much fun with the projects and ideas!  Our designers have outdone themselves this edition!  This week's challenge is another fabulous sketch!  Since we are featuring Sunny Fun, Summer Splash, and the Fish Frenzy Jumbo Wheel, I decided to use Stampin' Up!'s Summer Splash for my challenge card!



This card came together so easily that it was almost scary!  lol!  I took my colors from the plaid print in Pawsitively Prints II…a fun Poppy Parade, Tempting Turquoise and Wild Wasabi!



The base of the card is Wild Wasabi, I layered on Poppy Parade that I used the Color Spritzer and Poppy Parade Stampin' Write Marker in the corners for some added texture!  I layered on the strip of Designer Paper in the background.  I stamped the surfboards in Poppy Parade, Wild Wasabi and Tempting Turquoise on Whisper White, then cut them out.  I adhered them to the 2 3/8 Scallop Circle punch of Sahara Sand and that on 2 1/2 Circle punch of Wild Wasabi.  On the Sahara Sand Scallop Circle I used the Color Spritzer again with Sahara Sand Marker for the look of sand.  The center surfboard is popped up and has some Rhinestone bling, too. 


For the "waves" I used my Tasteful Trim Die and Tempting Turquoise cardstock and wrapped around the 1/8 Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon and tied a knot.  It was popped with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I also repeated the waves behind the DSP and added some bling with Rhinestone Jewels in each scallop.  Finally, I added "Let's Celebrate" from It's Your Birthday in Basic Black.


I really like how fun this card is…and so much fun to make!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Designers did over on Create with Connie and Mary!  Some great ideas using this sketch!

I absolutely LOVE this card, and think you did a great job with the colors and composition.  Now I've got to check out this set again in the mini catalog and see if I can't live without it.
