CCMC190 – Rue Des Fleurs

We're hosting a sketch challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary and everyone can play along!  Come join us this week!



I pulled out a new set, Rue Des Fleurs, for me (from the Occasions Mini) and put it together in order to make this card.  I think my favorite image is this pen…although I do like the corset, too!



I started with a base of Pool Party and layered on Soft Suede cardstock.  Then I added the floral pattern from Attic Boutique Designer Paper…so pretty!  I stamped the pen in Soft Suede and then the Thanks greeting, also in Rue Des Fleurs, in Calypso Coral on Whisper White cardstock.  Behind it I punched two Decorative Label Punches from Calypso Coral and layered them behind the Whisper White.  On the left side I punched a hole with the Crop A Dile and wrapped the Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon around and tied it with the Calypso Coral Bakers Twine.  On the right one, I added a trio of Pearls.  That element is mounted on Soft Suede that I ran thru the Big Shot with Finial Press Folder.


Make sure to check out what the rest of the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge Team has done this week!  There are some wonderful ideas for you!  We are finishing up the LAST week of Create with Connie and Mary Occasions Edition 2012, and it's not too late to join!  Our website stays up a year after the Edition is over.  For 36 step by step PHOTO tutorials at a cost of $34.95 US…that's less than $1 per tutorial!  Lots of great ideas for gifts, classes or stamp camps!  Join us!

I love this pen image, too! So pretty! I didn't think I would like this floral print from the dsp but this is really pretty here! I will have to try it out myself! And the little pearls are just perfect!

Really simple, but with all the DSP and little embellished additions, it looks like a "fussy" card!  Really lovely.  Great working with you on Create!

Great use of the sketch, Connie!  These colors are so pretty together and I love the little trio of pearls on the label.  The ruffled ribbon is a great detail too!

Very creative how you added the Decorative Label for one of your layers and the ribbon treatment is adorable!
