CCMC240 Bloomin Marvelous

It's time for another Thursday Challenge from Create with Connie and Mary!  This time a pretty color challenge!  Come play along!


I must admit, Bloomin' Marvelous is becoming my go-to set for Sale-a-bration.  Here I am using it again for the challenge!



This one is clean and simple and came together easily!


  1. The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Melon Mambo cardstock folded in half.
  2. A layer of Whisper White is 4 x 5 1/4.
  3. The Daffodil Delight Chevron design from Sunshine and Sprinkles is cut 1 1/4 x 5 and I rounded the corners with the Corner Rounder Punch.
  4. I added a 1/2" strip of Melon Mambo on top that I stamped with the greeting from Bloomin' Marvelous in Basic Gray.
  5. I punched 1 1/4" Scallop Circles from Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Basic Gray cardstock, then popped them up with Stampin' Dimensionals on the DSP.
  6. The Bloomin' Marvelous butterflies were stamped in Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Basic Gray and then added to the Scallop Circles with more Stampin' Dimensionals.  I also added rhinestones for the bodies.

I think it turned out pretty sweet!

What a gorgeous card – I love the scallop circles and butterflies in a mix of the challenge colours – wished I had've thought of combining them like that!

I too love this SAB stamp set. So much you can do with it. Pretty way to show the challenge colors in each butterfly atop a tiny scallop!
