CCMC 164

Good morning everyone! It's Thursday already and time for another super fun challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary team! This week is a sketch challenge. I hope that you will be able to play along with us! Take a look at the fantastic sketch:

And here is what I came up with:

Once again, I went in a masculine direction. I really like the images in the Need for Speed stamp set. And this sketch is really awesome! I actually made a different card with this sketch but I wanted to do something a little different. So this is what came out! I started out with a Not Quite Navy card base and then cut another piece of Not Quite Navy card stock and layered a piece of designer paper from the Neutrals paper stack. On top of that is a piece of Cajun Craze that was run through the Big Shot with the Houndstooth embossing folder. Then I added a strip Early Espresso that was die cut with the Tasteful Trim die. Two 5/16" silver brads were added and then the whole panel was glued to the card front. For my focal point I die cut a piece of River Rock card stock with the Perfect Pennants die and stamped the words from Happiest Birthday Wishes in Early Espresso. On a scrap piece of River Rock I stamped the car in Early Espresso and then added some highlights with the River Rock marker and cut it out. The pennant and the card are popped up on the card. 

Don't forget to stop by the Create with Connie and Mary site to see even more super great inspiration. Then make your own creation using the sketch provided. Be sure to upload it to the website so that we can all take a look and get even more inspired! I always love to see what you all come up with! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
