CCMC 185

Good morning everyone! It's time for another fun Thursday challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! This week we are challenged with color. Take a look!

The colors this week are Peach Parfait, Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade. Such FUN colors! But I did have a hard time trying to put Peach Parfait and Calypso Coral together. Here is what I finally came up with.

I decided to let the Confetti Cream do most of the 'talking'. These colors can be very bright but with all the cream they do soften quite a bit and can look very pretty! I love the way this one turned out! I got my layout from an older Clean&Simple sketch. I stamped the image from Bordering on Romance onto Confetti Cream in black StazOn. Then I used my aqua painter and water colored the image with Calypso Coral, Peach Parfait and Lucky Limeade. Then I cut the image out. I took a piece of Confetti Cream and stamped the greeting from Friendly Phrases in black StazOn at the bottom and attached this to a piece of Lucky Limeade. This panel is then popped up onto a card base of Confetti Cream. Then I took a strip of Calypso Coral and flagged both ends before gluing it to the card. Then I took a piece of Peach Parfait and ran it through the Big Shot with the Labels framelits die. I sponged it with Peach Parfait before popping it up on the card. The cut out flowers are then popped up on the label. The final touch was to add some pearls. And there you have it!

Be sure to check out the design team and their work with these fabulous colors! You can find them at the Create with Connie and Mary website. I do hope you will find some time to join us in this challenge and post your work to the website. We always love to see what you come up with! Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

  1. Deb, so soft and pretty! I love it!

  2. Beautifully done! Simple and elegant. Sometimes "simple" is the hardest thing to do!

  3. I so appreciate a classic, clean card...beautiful!....I am simple-challenged!

  4. Deb, you're hand cut image looks amazing against this color! Beautiful!

  5. Gorgeous Deb! I love how your watercoloring and all the cream really softens these otherwise bright colors. What a fabulous layout too!

  6. This is simply gorgeous. Every piece is distinct from the rest, but you are right about letting the CC CS soften everything down. I'm following you and learning the CAS style. Everything else has just worn me out, LOL TFS, Celia
