Welcome to Create with Connie and Mary’s Creatively Simple Challenge! Each month Mary and I will pick a theme…this month it is “FLOWERS”, and we each create a simple card every Tuesday using that theme!
Sometimes I’m just in the mood to color! I wanted this flower to be a bright, intense red color, so I used the new Sweet Sorbet In Color!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Sweet Sorbet cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic White was stamped with the greeting in Sweet Sorbet Ink, then added to the front.
- A 1-1/4 x 5-1/4 strip of Perfectly Penciled Designer Paper was added down the right side.
- The flower and leaves from Happiness Abounds were stamped with Memento Black Ink on Basic White cardstock, then colored with the Sweet Sorbet, Cherry Cobbler, Parakeet Party, and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. They were cut with the Bloomin’ Happiness Dies and added to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
That’s it! VERY simple card to pull together…the coloring took the longest to do! Check out what Mary did with this week’s Creatively Simple Flower Theme over on Create with Connie and Mary!

You make the nicest cards and I love your coloring. This one is so eye catching. I have not been very active in my card making lately but you sure are giving me incentive to get back to making cards. Thanks!
Ahh, thank you! Yes…get inspired to make cards again!
