Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge

This week over on Create with Connie and Mary's Thursday Challenge it is a sketch challenge!  Mary made up an awesome sketch from MDS for us to use.  Remember, it is for inspiration only, feel free to flip it around and use it as you are inspired!  Then upload your card over on the InLinkz gallery on Create with Connie and Mary!  Make sure you put CCMC106 in your post!  And, check out what the Challenge Design Team did this week…they are AWESOME!



And here is my card for this week!  I LOVE the colors of Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight together!  Throw in a little Pear Pizzazz and you have a P-A-R-T-Y!  lol!



I started with a base card of Marina Mist and embossed the front with the new Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder.  I cut a piece of Greenhouse Gala Designer Paper and layered it on Daffodil Delight cardatock.  I wrapped some Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon around and tied a knot.  (I'm SO happy we have some new colors in the Taffeta!)  I embossed the Pear Pizzazz piece with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder and rounded the corners.


For the focal element, I stamped the large flower from Stampin' Up!'s Level 2 Hostess Set, Punched Posies, in Daffodil Delight Classic Ink on Whisper White and punched with the Fancy Flower Punch.  I stamped it again in Marina Mist and punched out the center with the 1" circle.  I stamped the leaves in Pear Pizzazz and cut them out individually.  In the center, I added a new Daffodil Delight Designer Button and added some Linen Thread tied in a bow in the center.  Finally, I used the X shaped flower punched from Daffodil Delight cardstock with the Itty Bitty Punch and placed it where the sketch shows brads.  I love how it turned out!  What do you think?


Again, check out what the other Challenge Team designers did over on Create with Connie and Mary this week!  FABULOUS!  Then get out your stuff and play along!  We love to see your creations, too!
