CCMC 143

Well, this month seems to be flying by! I can't believe it's Thursday and time for another challenge with Create with Connie and Mary! This week, Connie and Mary are challenging us with this sketch. Check it out!

And boy was this sketch challenging! I worked and re-worked my designs. I scrapped most of them. But then I finally decided I liked this card. I also wanted some fun spring colors. So I went to my Color Coach and found these: Marina Mist, Pink Pirouette, Soft Suede and Certainly Celery. I started with a card base of Marina Mist and then added a panel of Pink Pirouette with Whisper White satin ribbon tied around it. For the scalloped squares, I punched two from Soft Suede and then used my scallop squares duo die to cut the third from Soft Suede. I then ran them through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to fit in the middle scallop square to kind of "highlight" it. Then I used my Birds & Blossoms sizzlets to cut the flowers and leaves. I added silver brads and the middle flower is popped up (the middle scallop square is also popped up). The last thing was the greeting from the A Word for You stamp set which is stamped in Soft Suede. Done!
