CCMC 151

Good morning, Friends! It's Thursday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary challenge! This week they have come up with a fabulous sketch challenge!! Take a look: 
Isn't it just fantastic? I love this sketch!! I am so looking forward to using this one again and again! Here is what I came up with:

The jury is still out on my card. I don't hate it but I just couldn't make anything else work. You will notice that I did leave off a couple of elements. I started with a card base of Pear Pizzazz. Then I cut down a piece of Not Quite Navy and another piece of Pear Pizzazz. I wrapped a piece of Pear Pizzazz poly twill ribbon around these and glued it down to the card. I stamped the motor scooter from On the Grow stamp set, on a piece of shimmery white cardstock with black StazOn and watercolored it using Pear Pizzazz, Not Quite Navy, and Peach Parfait inks and an aqua painter (I also used a little Sahara Sand and Basic Gray). I punched a Peach Parfait flower with the Boho Blossoms and a Not Quite Navy 1/2" circle. This is glued behind the watercolored piece and both are mounted onto the card. I added a clear button with some white baker's twine. Then I stamped the greeting from the same set in Basic Black onto shimmery white cardstock and punched it out with the Word Window punch. This is mounted onto a piece of Not Quite Navy cardstock that was punched with the Modern Label punch and the whole thing is popped up onto the card. And there you have it!!

Now it's time for you to check out the Create with Connie and Mary site to see what the rest of the very talented design team has come up with! Then it's your turn! Create a project using the sketch that has been provided and upload it to the Create with Connie and Mary website so we all can have a look. I can't wait to see what you come up with! Have a super day!!
