CCMC 177

Good morning everyone! And HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I hope you enjoy your day with family and/or friends! We are enjoying the day with family in Kansas! Nick had the whole week off so we left last Saturday and will be going back home to Colorado on Saturday. But today is the Thursday Create with Connie and Mary challenge. I wasn't able to get my design team card done before I left so I threw a few stamp supplies (and I mean a FEW) together and figured I would make the card at my mom's. This week's challenge is a color challenge. Take a look!

The challenge colors are Night of Navy, Lucky Limeade and River Rock. Don't they look wonderful together?! Here is what I came up with (with my limited supplies):

I brought my Lean on Me stamp set because it makes very easy cards and the images are so cute! For this card I used a sketch from the Clean&Simple blog (the sketch used an circle and I made mine a square). My card base is Lucky Limeade with a piece of Lucky Limeade striped dsp on top. The focal point is the stamp stamped in black StazOn on Whisper White. I also stamped the boy image again on scrap paper and cut him out after coloring him with my aqua painter. Then I cut a strip of River Rock and flagged the ends. This was glued to the Whisper White piece and then glued to a Night of Navy piece and then I put two gold brads in. I popped up this panel onto the card and after cutting the little boy out, I popped him up right over the original boy image. Done!!

Please be sure to check out the rest of the design team and their wonderful creations at the Create with Connie and Mary site! I hope you will be able to find some time this next week to play along with us and show off your wonderful creations! I know we all love to see what you come up with! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
