CCMC 165

Good morning everyone! Take a look at this fantastic color challenge from the team at Create with Connie and Mary! Take a look at these fun bright colors!

The challenge colors are Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie, and Lucky Limeade. Lots of fun things to do with these colors but I decided to go in the Halloween direction. Take a look:

Fun card, eh?! I love this Wicked Cool set! And it is time to get it out again as Halloween is starting to show up in the stores! I used an older sketch from The Paper Players to help get me started. I started with a card base of Rich Razzleberry and then glued a piece of Lucky Limeade designer paper to it. A strip of Rich Razzleberry is peeking out from behind the main focal panel. The main focal panel is a piece of Whisper White that has three Pumpkin Pie pieces that were cut into tags. I punched holes at the top and added some Basic Black narrow taffeta ribbon. Then I punched three Basic Black circles with the 1 3/8" circle punch and glued them to the tags. I stamped the witch's hat three times on scrap Whisper White in Rich Razzleberry, cut them out and popped them up on the circles. I stamped 'spooky' in Rich Razzleberry in the lower right hand corner and the whole panel is popped up on the card. The last thing I did was to punch a little flower using the itty bitty shapes punch pack and Lucky Limeade designer paper. These are attached to the hats and a rhinestone finishes it all off!

Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary website to see what the other designers have done with the great colors! Then be sure to create your own project using these colors and upload it to their site so we can all see! I always look forward to seeing your wonderful creations!

One more thing before I sign off... I want to make sure that you all know about the upcoming Create with Connie and Mary Holiday 2011 edition.
