Welcome to Create with Connie and Mary’s Creatively Simple Challenge! Each month Mary and I will pick a theme. This month the theme is Goodbye! We will design our cards using this theme of retiring products!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Balmy Blue cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.

- The large outside oval from Framed Florets Dies was cut from Basic White cardstock and added to the front.
