CCMC184 – PS I Love You

It's time for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge again!   We have a fun sketch for you to try and invite you to play along!  And…we have a SPECIAL Guest Designer Announcement over there, too!  Make sure to stop and check her out!



Now, I'm sure that at times you struggle with a card.  I had intentions of tearing this apart and starting over, but ran out of time.  Don't know what it is that is "off" to me…but I'm just not wild about it!  What do you think?  Maybe the color combo?



I started with a base of Calypso Coral and added Wisteria Wonder that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Tulip Frame Impressions Folder.  I added some Sweet Shop Designer Paper and layered it on Whisper White.  I added the Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon and did a little gathering in one portion of it.  I punched 5 of the Small Heart Punch from Calypso Coral and used the Square Lattice Impressions Folder on them.  I also added some bling with the rhinestone jewels.  For the sixth element of the sketch I stamped Sent with Love greeting from PS I Love You in Calypso Coral on Whisper White and punched with the 1" Circle Punch.


Well anyway, make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with this sketch!  And…upload your creation to InLinkz over on Create with Connie and Mary…we love to see your work.  Make sure to sign up for the Occasions Edition 2012 while you are there!  We have some FABULOUS projects for you this time…you won't want to miss it!

I love the little bit of scrunched up ribbon and the falling heart. Great effect!

Connie this is a Great CAS card! I struggle with CAS, always taking it overdone and soon you know, back to shabby chic. I always appreciate a well done Clean And Simple!

Great use of the embossed paper.  Love the "falling" heart.  The jewels are the perfect touch on each of the hearts.

I really like these colors paired together..perhaps a new color combination for our team?

Cute, Connie!  I like the color combination and the little bit of ruffle on the ribbon is adorable!
