Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge

Time again for a sketch challenge on Create with Connie and Mary!  I know it is a BUSY week, but hopefully you can find a few minutes to sneak away and make a card for the challenge!  It is fun to see how each of us intrepreted the sketch this week!



And here is my card!  Love the soft colors with this set!



I think Stampin' Up!'s set, Greeting Card Kids is just DARLING.  I wanted to use this little winter girl one more time before I put her away for the holidays…although, really, she could be used for a winter birthday!  Hmmm, cut her out and pull something else in the little wagon!  OK…my mind is going now! 


I started with a base of Marina Mist cardstock.  Then I used the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder and inked up the inside with my White Craft Ink (on the raised side).  I placed the Blushing Bride cardstock inside and ran it thru the Big Shot.  It gives a really cool look to the cardstock, doesn't it?  I thought it looked very vintage.  I stamped the image on Very Vanilla with Black Stazon and carefully watercolored with my Stampin' Write Markers in Blushing Bride, Marina Mist, Garden Green, Daffodil Delight and Blush Blossom.  I layered it on Basic Gray cardstock and placed it on the front of the card.  I wrapped the Marina Mist 1 1/4 Striped Ribbon around to the back and adhered.  Then I gather the ribbon and tied a bow with Linen Thread. 


See the adhesive Pearls in the circle on the background!  It really shows up MUCH better in real life.  I stamped the greeting from a new set in the Occasions Mini called Bring on the Cake in Basic Black on Blushing Bride, punched with the 1 1/4 circle and layered on a 1 3/8 circle of Marina Mist.  It is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals and a few more Pearls added to the front.


Make sure to check out the rest of the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge Team to see what they did this week!  Each card is SO different!  Play along and upload your card on Inlinkz!


Hope you have a VERY, Merry Christmas!

I so love the pinks & blues together. What a great combination. I agree, that little girl is so adorable I hate to put her away!

This is just lovely. Your colour choices although not traditional are fantastic!
