CCMC155 – Fun Flower

Here's Take 2 on the Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge this week!  I had originally made this one, then continued on and made the one I actually used for my Design Team challenge card.  You can see it HERE!  Sometimes it is nice to do two or more cards with the same challenge layout when you are already working with it!  Here is the sketch we have for this week again.



And here is my second card using the sketch.  Two completely different styles, aren't they?


Can you see I'm combining some of the Summer Mini products with the NEW catalog products on this card?  I love how easy it is to mix and match with Stampin' Up! products!  I took my colors from the Playful Polka Dots Scrappin' Kit!  I've used most of the adhesive diecuts out of that kit, but I still have a LOT of Designer Paper left and they are such CHEERFUL colors, I love working with them.  The base of the card is Rose Red, and I layered on Daffodil Delight that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Details Impressions Folder.  I cut the Fun Flower with the Kit DSP and Rose Red cardstock.  The Rose Red flower I ran thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder.  In the center, I used the new Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch in Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie.  In the center, I added one of the FUN new printed In Color brads that I won on the Cruise!


The Top Note in the background is more of the Scrappin' Kit DSP and I wrapped Old Olive Satin Ribbon around, tied with a bow and adhered in the back of the Daffodil Delight layer.  Finally I stamped Happy Birthday from Recess stamp set in Basic Black and punched with the Word Window punch.


LOTS of different products on here, but I really don't think it looks too busy!  Make sure to snap up one of the Playful Polka Dots Scrappin' Kits soon!  I did a really cool project with them for Create with Connie and Mary Summer Edition and can tell you it is one of the best kits I've used in a LONG time!  You still have time to play along with this week's Create with Connie and Mary challenge, so grab your stamps and join us!
