CCMC 183

Good morning everyone! I hope your week is going great! It's time once again for a fun challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! This week we are being challenged with color. Take a look at these lovely colors!

The challenge colors are Blushing Bride, Pool Party and Soft Suede. I love this combination!! And this is how I used these beautiful colors!

Time to put some Valentine cards together! This is a very clean and simple layout. I started with a piece of Blushing Bride. I stamped the Solid Stripes single stamp across the bottom in Blushing Bride ink. Then I stamped the greeting from Grateful Greetings in Soft Suede. I tied a piece of Pool Party seam binding ribbon around this and glued it to a piece of Pool Party card stock. This whole panel is popped up on a card base of Soft Suede. Then I took a piece of Soft Suede and ran it through the Big Shot with the scalloped heart of hearts embosslit. I punched a piece of Pool Party with the full heart punch. I sponged the edges in Pool Party and glued it to the Soft Suede heart. Then I punched a small heart from Blushing Bride using the itty bitty shapes punch pack. I popped this up on the other hearts and added a pearl. There you have it!

Be sure to check out the other designers work with these colors on the Create with Connie and Mary site! Then create your own project using these colors and upload it to their site so we can all take a look! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
