It's time for the Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection 2013 Saturday challenge…it is a GORGEOUS color combination, using a couple of the NEW In Colors…so soft and delicious! 



Here is my card using this fun color challenge and one of the sets we featured this week…Timeless Talk!


Here are the details:

  1. The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Pistachio Pudding folded in half to make the base card.
  2. I adhered the Crisp Cantaloupe Ruffled Ribbon to the bottom of a 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 piece of Soft Suede cardstock.  I also adhered a 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 piece of Pistachio Pudding In Colors Designer Paper Stack towards the bottom.
  3. I stamped the bicycle from Timeless Talk with Soft Suede on Whisper White, then cut with the Decor Label Framelit.  I added an Itty Bitty flower Punch from Crisp Cantaloupe pattern in the In Colors DSP Stack to the spoke hub and a Neutrals Candy Dot in the Center.  I also added two more flowers with candy dots in the upper right corner to match.
  4. I cut a 1 1/4 x 2 1/2 Crisp Cantaloupe Polka Dot pattern and a 1 x 2 piece of Pistachio Pudding cardstock, cut the flag ends and adhered under the Decor Label.
  5. Finally, I stamped the Happy Birthday from Banner Greetings Hostess Set in Crisp Cantaloupe on Whisper White and cut it out, then adhered along the right side of the Bicycle image.

When I was playing around, I did several versions of this card…one of the other versions was for my June Stamp Club.  I'll share those a little later!
