CCMC466 Garden Girl

It’s Thursday…time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  This is a cool sketch challenge this week…I’ll be using the sketch again, I know!

One of the first sets I ordered was Garden Girl…she reminded me of my grand-daughter and I thought I’d use it for her.  Then I didn’t see many samples, and I was wondering how to use her!  I made several watercolored samples with Watercolor Pencils and Inks in different colors and they were laying on my desk…so decided to try one with this sketch.



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • A 4 x 5-1/4 piece was cut from the Fresh Florals Designer Paper in the Berry Burst color.
  • A strip of Tranquil Tide Ribbon was cut and wrapped around to the back of the DSP to adhere.  Then that panel added to the base card.
  • I cut and angled a 3-1/4 x 3-1/2 piece of Whisper White cardstock, then added a 1/4″ strip of Basic Black cardstock behind it on the left side.  It was popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The Garden Girl image was stamped with Basic Black Archival Ink on Shimmer White and watercolored with the Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen.  She was cut out an added to the front of the Whisper White panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The greeting from Beautiful Bouquet stamp set was stamped with Basic Black Archival Ink in the bottom right corner.
  • A couple Glitter Dots were added to the front.


Such a sweet card, I think!  Check out the fun with the rest of the Challenge Team over on Create with Connie and Mary this week! Then play along! And…our JULY MINI SESSION just opened! Don’t miss out!  Make sure to sign up today!

This little girl is super sweet and oh so fun to color! I didn’t give her a second look when I first flipped through the new catalog, but I’ve sure taken notice of all the cute cards everyone’s making with her! Great job, Connie!
