CCMC 167

Good morning everyone!! Once again, it's Thursday. Boy, does time fly by!! So it's time for another super fun challenge from the wonderful ladies at Create with Connie and Mary! This week they have a color challenge for us! Check out these awesome colors!
They reminded me of fall. And it definitely feels like fall around our area. The mornings and evenings have that "chill". I love it!! As we drive to Denver for soccer games, you can see some of the trees starting to change colors. In a few weeks it will be a glorious sight! So, I decided to take my card in a fall-like direction. Check it out!
I really love the way this turned out! I took a piece of Confetti White card stock and stamped lightly with Basic Grey ink the A to Z background stamp in the middle. Then I stamped one of the leaf images from Autumn Splendor lightly with Old Olive ink. To the top part of this panel I glued a piece of Basic Grey designer paper from the Neutrals paper stack and toward the bottom I glued a piece of Basic Grey textured card stock. The greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes is stamped in Basic Grey in the lower left hand corner. Then I took a strip of Cajun Craze card stock, tore it and glued it behind this panel. This panel is popped up onto a card base of Basic Grey textured card stock. For my focal point, I took a scrap piece of Confetti White card stock and stamped the leaf image twice - once in Old Olive and once in Cajun Craze and cut them out. These are popped up. My finishing touch was to take a Basic Grey button from the Neutrals buttons, thread some linen thread through the holes and tie a bow. It was adhered with glue dots right over the stems. These colors have a real elegant feel. I got my card layout from the Clean & Simple blog. 

Be sure to check out the rest of the design team submissions for this week's challenge. You can find them all at the Create with Connie and Mary website. I do hope that you will be able to play along with us this week! I always love to see what you come up with! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
