WOOHOO!!! It's a CELEBRATION!
Create with Connie and Mary is celebrating their 100th challenge (we started numbering on #100)!!! Hard to believe we actually have been doing them each week for that long! To celebrate…we have some BLOG CANDY for those that play along with the challenge this week! Check out all the details over on Create with Connie and Mary!
Since this is a special challenge, we are doing a special theme…
- Make a celebration card
- Use your favorite designer series paper from the MAIN catalog (before it retires)
- OPTIONAL: Use a banner or pennant on your card
Here is MY celebration card:
I started with my favorite Designer Paper in the main catalog…Hostess Only Cheerful Treat! I love the bright colors! The base of my square 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card is Melon Mambo. I layered on Lucky Limeade, then Whisper White. For the pinwheel, I cut three 1 3/4" squares of the patterns in the Designer Paper, cut them in half, then rounded one of the corners. I arranged the points together and spaced them around that center point evenly. To hide that area of overlapping points, I punched a 1" Circle of Lucky Limeade, then added a Brights Button tied with Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine. I stamped Celebrate Today from Stampin' Up!'s Perfectly Penned in Basic Black on Melon Mambo, cut it into the pennant shape and attached it under the button and to the front with a Stampin' Dimensional.
I love the whimsical look of my card and hope you do, too! Make sure to check out the BLOG CANDY and what the other Challenge Team Members did for our special 100th Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary! Then grab your stuff and play along!
