CCMC 156

Good morning everyone! Are you ready for another fabulous Thursday challenge from Create with Connie and Mary? This week they are challenging you with color! Check out these fantastic colors:
The challenge colors are Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise, and Old Olive. Don't they look yummy together? Here is what I came up with:

I really like how my card came out! I actually copied it from the brand new Idea Book & Catalog! I did have to change the stamps and I did use different colors but the rest is pretty much the same! I started with a card base of textured Tempting Turquoise. Then I took my sponge dauber and my Very Vanilla craft pad and sponged the middle area. Isn't that cool? To that I added a strip of Newsprint designer paper which I punched one side with the scallop trim punch. I cut a strip of Tangerine Tango and notched one end and glued that to the dsp. For my focal point I cut a piece of Old Olive and stamped the stem from Fabulous Florets in Old Olive (I stamped off once to make it a little lighter). I stamped the flower in Tangerine Tango on Very Vanilla and cut it out. This is popped up on the stem. Then I stamped the greeting from Happy Greetings in Basic Black. For the final touches, I rounded the top right corner and popped up the panel onto the card. There you have it!

Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary website to see what the other fabulous designers came up with! I do hope you will find time to play along this week. I love to see what you all come up with! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  1. the newsprint in the background!

  2. The Newsprint offsets the other layers so perfectly! Nice card!

  3. Debbie!! The swipe of vanilla ink just sets off the whole thing. it really makes the center panel pop and I love how the newsprint works with these colors. GREAT job!

  4. Great job! I love this layout and your use of the newsprint is fabulous.
