CCMC155 – Recess

It's Thursday and time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  We have a FUN sketch for you to try…love the background elements in this one!  I''m anxious to see what you come up with, so grab your stamps and play along!  Upload your creation over on Create with Connie and Mary.  We announce the Top 3 Picks every Wednesday…so check back to see if your card was selected!

 

 

And here is my card!  I love this Celebration Designer Paper (I think I've said that once or twice before!) and the colors are so fun for a kids birthday or encouragement card.

 

 

I started with a base of Real Red and layered on Bashful Blue that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder.  I cut half of the Top Note lengthwise out of the Celebrations DSP and placed it on the right side.  I stamped the girl sliding from Stampin' Up!'s Recess stamp set with Black Stazon on Whisper White and colored her with Stampin' Write Markers…like her polka dot shorts?  lol!  I punched with the 2 3/8 Scallop Circle Punch and then layered it on the 2 1/2 Circle Punch of Pacific Point cardstock.  I wrapped some Red Satin Ribbon around and tied a knot.  I added a banner that is stamped with Way To Go from the same stamp set. and used the retiring Photo Corner Punch to notch out the end.  I thought it needed something up in the upper left corner, so I used a couple Real Red Mini Brads.

 

Make sure to check out what the rest of the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team did this week.  We have a NEW designer joining us for our Thursday Challenges…we want to welcome Nance Leedy to our design team!
