CCMC 133

Good morning, Friends! I hope that your week is going wonderfully! It is time for another great challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary team! I do hope that you will find time to join us and post your project to the site. I do love to see what others have come up with!

Today Connie and Mary have come up with a fabulous color challenge! I do love these colors together, don't you? Reminds me of spring. Ahhhh.... O.k. Back to reality! It is nowhere near spring around here but a girl can dream, right? Lol! And that is what I did with my card.

For my card I started with a sketch from the Clean & Simple blog. I believe this was from a few weeks ago but I loved the sketch. Anyway, I started with a card base of Baja Breeze. Then I took a strip of Chocolate Chip and used my Tasteful Trim die to make the scallops. Then I mounted a piece of Pear Pizzazz to that and then tied a piece of Very Vanilla seam binding around the area where the two pieces met. This is popped up. But make sure you stamp the greeting in Chocolate Chip before you pop it all up (do you know how I know this? - lol). Then I stamped the birds from the Clearly For You set (in the Occasions mini) in So Saffron on a scrap of Very Vanilla and punched it out with the 1 1/4" circle punch. Then I punched a 1 3/8" circle of Chocolate Chip and a scallop of So Saffron and layered them together. This scallop is then popped up. Done! I like the way it turned out! Soft and serene. Yea, I can't wait for spring...

O.k. Need more inspiration? Sure! We all do! So be sure to check out the fantastic designers at Create with Connie and Mary to see what they did. Then create your own project and upload it to their site. I can't wait to see what you do! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
