CCMC 153

Good Thursday morning! Man the week is going way to fast for me! I have enjoyed having my family out for the week and they will be leaving all too soon! Create with Connie and Mary have another awesome challenge for us this week! It's a sketch challenge! I do love their sketches!! Here is the sketch:

And here is what I came up with:

This is a 4 1/4" square card. And I do have to say that I love it! This card just makes me happy when I look at it. And the best part is, it was SO easy! I can see lots of uses for this sketch! I started with a card base of Crumb Cake. Then I cut another piece of Crumb Cake and added the Real Red strips to it. I ran this piece through the Big Shot with the square lattice embossing folder. Then I took a piece of Very Vanilla and stamped the steam from Bold Blossoms in Old Olive. Then I decided to use my Bouquet Blossoms triple layer punch and punched layer two from Marina Mist and layer three from Bashful Blue. I glued these two layers together and then onto the card. Then I stamped the small flower in Real Red on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla and punched it out with the 1/2" circle punch. This is glued to the center of the punched flower. Then I inked the "thank you" in Marina Mist and stamped it to the panel. This gets glued to a piece of Marina Mist and then popped up onto the square lattice piece. I wrapped a piece of Marina Mist narrow taffeta ribbon around this and then glued it to my card base. My final touch was to add a rhinestone to the middle of the flower. And there you have it!

Be sure to head to the Create with Connie and Mary website for more great inspiration using this sketch! Then create your own project and post it to their website so we can all see! I do love seeing your creations! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
