CCMC 149

Good Thursday morning, Friends! It's time for another Create with Connie and Mary challenge! This week they are challenging us with a sketch. Check it out:

And here is what I came up with:

Love the sketch! So many possibilities! So I went with a new stamp set from the Summer mini catalog. I started with a card base of Old Olive and then added a piece of designer paper from the Beyond the Garden pack. Then I took a piece of Basic Black and cut a scallop from the Tasteful Trim die. I wrapped a piece of white baker's twine around this and added a rhinestone brad. Then this was glued down. I took the floral stamp from the On the Grow set and stamped it on shimmery white paper with StazOn ink and watercolored the image with coordinating colors and my aqua painter. I mounted this onto a piece of Basic Black and then popped it up onto the card. I wanted to add a sentiment on the front but I couldn't make it look quite right so I will add it to the inside. But it was quite easy and very fun! Can't wait to use this layout again!!

So now it's your turn to play along with us! Go make a card using this fabulous sketch and upload it to the Create with Connie and Mary blog so we can all see! And while you are there, be sure to check out the rest of the design team! They always come up with really fantastic creations!
