CCMC186 – Fresh Vintage

It's Thursday and time for another Create with Connie and Mary Challenge!  Are you ready?  We have a very fun sketch for you to try this week!



I used Fresh Vintage, one of the Sale-A-Bration sets we are featuring over on Create with Connie and Mary Occasions Edition.  We are in Week 2 and have had some fabulous projects so far!  It's not too late to join!  Click on the Buy Now button over on my right sidebar, or check out the Preview Projects we did on Create with Connie and Mary…just to give you a taste of what our tutorials look like.  We are sharing over 36 step-by-step tutorials…that will not be seen or previewed anywhere else!  At $34.95 US, that is less than $1 per tutorial!


I love the colors in the Twitterpated Designer Paper.  This stripe, of course, is one of my favorites and I took the colors on my card from it.  The base is Pear Pizzazz.  I layered on two diffferent designs from Twitterpated and added them to a layer of Basic Gray.  I wrapped the Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon around to hide the seam.  I cut two Label Collection Framelits…one in Whisper White and one in Cherry Cobbler.  I inked up the floral design with my Stampin' Write Markers in Cherry Cobbler, Pear Pizzazz and Basic Gray and then stamped on the White.  It is layered on the Cherry Cobbler, and I added pearls to accent the label.  Finally, I added some Beautiful Wings Embossed Butterflies with pearls for their bodies!  I tied a bow, added a Glimmer Brad and placed it on the front with Mini Glue Dots.


My husband even commented (without prompting) that it was a striking card!  Woohoo!


Make sure to check out the rest of the Challenge Team's ideas over on Create with Connie and Mary!  Some FABULOUS ideas as usual!

Really pretty, Connie!  I love the way you layered the framelits…it looks great.  Haven't seen that done that way before.  People probably thought it was a cardinal sin!  Way to be brave!  Love the colors and the little butterflies.

So like they way the Cherry Cobbler gives the other colors a splash. And those little butterflies are adorable with the layout!
