Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge

Today is the Create with Connie and Mary Occasions Edition Saturday Challenge and we have a great color combination.  We invite our subscribers to play along and be entered into a drawing for one of two $75 Stampin' Up! gift certificates OR one of two FREE subscriptions to the SUMMER Edition of Create with Connie and Mary!  They get a chance for each time they submit their entry to our weekly challenges!  It's not too late to join and check out all the fabulous projects that have been shared!

This week we have been showcasing the products from the Springtime Vintage Suite of products!  The color challenge for today uses Rose Red, Pear Pizzazz, Baja Breeze and Very Vanilla…all colors that can be found in the Springtime Vintage Designer Paper and Fabric!  I chose to use Baby Blossoms for my card…I love those little flowers!



I started with a base of Rose Red cardstock.  I layered on Baja Breeze that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Elegant Lines Impressions Folder.  I cut a strip of the Springtime Vintage Designer Paper and layered it onto a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  It is hard to see, but the Pear Pizzazz is scored every 1/2 inch for another layer of texture!  I wrapped the Victoria Crochet Trim Ribbon around and tied on the tag.  The tag is a 2 1/2 circle of Rose Red.  On top I punched Very Vanilla with the 2 3/8 Scallop Circle (AVAILABLE AGAIN!), on it I stamped the flowers in Baja Breeze around the Scallop Circle.  I stamped some of the roses in Rose Red on scrap Very Vanilla, cut them out and placed them on the side of the Scallop Circle.  I added some Pear Pizzazz leaves.  The tag is secured to the card with a Stampin' Dimensional.


Finally, I added a trio of Pearls in different sizes along the curve of the punched circle.  I added the greeting, A Gift for You, from Bring on the Cake in Rose Red…can you see the little pearl in the bow of the gift?
