CCMC 179

Good morning everyone! It's time again for another fantastic challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! This week is a color challenge and just take a look at these very fun colors!!

The challenge colors are Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade, and Basic Grey. The green and red spoke Christmas to me. And the grey fits right in with a silver look. Love it! So here is what I came up with.

I really do like the way this one turned out! Lucky Limeade and Poppy Parade are very bright so I used more of the Basic Grey to mute them a bit. This is one super simple card! My card base is Basic Grey. I stamped the Simple Snowflake stamp on it in Basic Grey and rounded the bottom corners. Then I took a strip of Whisper White and stamped the greeting from Word Play in black StazOn. I stamped it again on a scrap piece of Whisper White and colored the ornament with the Lucky Limeade and Poppy Parade markers and cut it out. This strip is layered onto a piece of Poppy Parade and then a piece of Lucky Limeade ruffled ribbon is tied around it and glued to the card. Then I took the cut out ornament and popped it up on the card (right over the original one). Easy!!

Please take some time to go see what the other designers have come up with! You will find their creations at Create with Connie and Mary! I do hope you will have some time to play along with us! We always love to see what you come up with! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  3. Great minds think alike! How funny that we used the same stamp set!

  4. I love how you've used this stamp set. That little ornament is too cute. TFS.

  5. So great Deb! I love your clean layouts (as always) and you've certainly done the challenge colours justice. Great job.
