Today's Create with Connie and Mary's Thursday Challenge has some FUN colors! Nice and bright! I almost went with a Christmas theme…the colors could easily be used for that holiday, but decided to go with flowers instead. I pulled out my Vintage Vogue stamp set (so glad it is in the new catalog) and brightened it up with these bold colors. We'd love for you to play along with the Thursday Challenge and upload your creation over on Create with Connie and Mary blog. Don't forget to state CCMC107 in your blog post or gallery when you share your card!
I started with a base of Old Olive cardstock. I ran a piece of Whisper White thru the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder, then placed on a thin mat of Real Red cardstock. I inked up the Just For You greeting from Afterthoughts, a Level 1 hostess set, with my Real Red and Pink Pirouette Stampin' Write Markers and stamped it on Whisper White. I stamped the vine border from Vintage Vogue with Old Olive Classic Ink along the bottom. I also stamped the large flower from Vintage Vogue with Real Red and small flower with Pink Pirouette on scrap Whisper White cardstock, cut them out and placed them on the front of the card, along with a couple Old Olive leaves.
In the center of the large flowers, I punched the round flower from Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack from So Saffron cardstock and placed the matching clear Itty Bitty Button, thread with Linen Thread and tied in a small bow. The small Pink Pirouette flowers, I used a Rhinestone Jewel in the center of each for some added sparkle! The Whisper White cardstock was layered on Real Red. I wrapped the Old Olive Satin Ribbon bow around and adhered to the back!
I like this card a lot! The bright colors really pop with this set. Again, I hope you play along. Check out what the other Challenge Team Members did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!
