CCMC284 Follow My Heart

Hmmm, I don't know what happened, but my original post here disappeared!  I had it saved before the server upgrade, so it must have knocked it out!  Anyway…here I go again!  I'm so happy to be done with green/red and blue/silver for a while!  The bright Strawberry Slush color in the Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge this week really helped get me in a new groove!  Come play along!



And here is my card.  I love how the jagged edges of the Starburst Framelit coordinates with the pattern in the Kaleidoscope Designer Paper!



  1. The 4 1/4 x 11 base is Bermuda Bay cardstock, folded in half.
  2. I added a 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Strawberry Slush.
  3. On top of that I added a 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 piece of Kaleidoscope Designer Paper.
  4. I stamped the Eiffel Tower in Black Stazon on Whisper White, then cut with the Starburst Framelit.  Across the center of it, I stamped the greeting from Follow My Heart in Strawberry Slush ink. 
  5. I layered it on the larger Circle Framelit of Basic Black.
  6. I added the Small Heart punch and a little rhinestone in it to the tower.
  7. I cut a couple banners, one from Bermuda Bay cardstock and the other from the key image in Strawberry Slush and added them under the Starburst Framelit.

I love how it turned out!  So retro chic, don't you think?  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did over on Create with Connie and Mary!

I purchased the DSP but haven’t had time to look at it yet. It’s gorgeous and love all the layers!
