CCMC396 Grateful Bunch

It’s Thursday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary challenge…it’s a color challenge this week!



Here’s my card using these colors:

CCMC396 Grateful Bunch

The details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Hello Honey, folded in half.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White, a 4 x 4-3/4 piece of Botanical Gardens Designer Paper is cut on the diagonal and adhered to the top.
  • A coordinating black print from the same DSP package is cut 1-1/4 x 4 and placed across the front.
  • Whisper White is punched with the 2-1/2 Circle Punch and added to the front.
  • Large Number Framelits cut the number 50 from Basic Black.
  • The Grateful Bunch flowers were stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink on Hello Honey cardstock and punched with the Blossom Bunch Punch and added with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Cajun Craze Candy Dots were placed in the center of the flowers.
  • A 2 x 2 piece of Hello Honey was punched with the Triple Banner Punch and stamped with the greeting from Grateful Bunch in Tuxedo Black.

That’s it!  Make sure to check out the rest of the Challenge Team over on Create with Connie and Mary and see what they did with this color challenge!

This is so classy & spring-y! I love the large numbers….as in the size…and the age of course. LOL! 🙂

Love the layering of the Cajun Craze paper at an angle and the bold numbers, but the quirky bright yellow sentiment banner is my favourite! Great card this week Connie!

Love the little sentiment banner peeking out at an angle…and everything else, really! Fun “50” card!
