CCMC 155

Hello everyone! Are you ready for another great Thursday challenge from Create with Connie and Mary? This week we are being challenge with a sketch. Take a look:

And here is what I finally came up with:

As you can see, I altered the sketch just a bit. But it is all still there! I used the Medallion stamp in place of the half top note shape in the sketch. And I used a tag in place of the circle focal point. I did keep the wide striped ribbon. I love that stuff!! Anyway, I stamped the Medallion in Basic Black on Very Vanilla cardstock and mounted that onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock. I wrapped a piece of Basic Black striped ribbon around this and used some Very Vanilla narrow taffeta ribbon to tie a black button on one end. This panel gets popped up onto the Very Vanilla card. Then I took some Basic Black cardstock and die cut a tag from Lots of Tags sizzlet. I stamped the greeting from the Happy Greetings set on Very Vanilla cardstock in Basic Black ink and punched it out with the wide oval punch and glued it to the center of the tag. The tag is then popped up on the card. And that's it! Super simple! The hardest part was cleaning off my Medallion stamp - lol!

Now it's your turn! Go to the Create with Connie and Mary website and see what the other designers came up with. They always have such wonderful ideas and ways to interpret the sketch! Then create your own project using the sketch and upload it to their site so we can all see! I just love seeing what you all come up with! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
