CCMC368 Wild About Flowers

I love the bright colors in this week’s Create with Connie and Mary color challenge!  Of course, with Tangerine Tango and Cucumber Crush, I immediately thought “flowers”!  lol!

 And here’s my card for the color challenge:

CCMC368 Wild About Flowers
I kept it crisp and clean by using a lot of white space!

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Pacific Point, folded in half.
  • The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White was embossed with the Brick Embossing folder.
  • Across the center is a 1-1/2 x 4 strip of Brights Collection Designer Paper Stack.
  • A Lots of Labels Framelit was cut from scrap Whisper White, and the flower stems were stamped with Cucumber Crush ink and the tops with Tangerine Tango.  At the bottom, the Pacific Point button was tied with White Baker’s Twine in a bow, then added with a Mini Glue Dot.  The Label was placed on the front with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
  • You’re In My Thoughts from A Dozen Thoughts was stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink on a 1/2″ x 4 strip of Tangerine Tango, then adhered over the top of the label.  Love the pop of color it provides!

OK…make sure to check out the rest of the Challenge Team this week over on Create with Connie and Mary.  Then grab your stamps and play along!  Oh…and don’t forget to sign up for our NEXT August Mini Session!

I love all the white space, Connie! I also like the way you kept the green to a minimum and really highlighted the blue!

I really like that layout and the way you added the button at the bottom of the flower stems. The button *grounds* the flowers and adds a nice touch!

Oh I love how you focused on the blue and white and used the Cucumber and Tangerine as accent colors! Perfect on the brick wall!!
