CCMC 187

Good morning, Friends! Time to play along with another great challenge from the team at Create with Connie and Mary! This week we are being challenged with color. Take a look at these yummy colors!

The challenge colors are Concord Crush, Pool Party and Sahara Sand. I didn't even think about ever putting these colors together but they look so great! Take a look at what I came up with!

I really liked the idea of making a Valentine card using non-traditional "valentine" colors. I took a piece of Sahara Sand that was cut down and stamped the dotted heart from I {Heart} Hearts in Sahara Sand. Then I wrapped a piece of Pool Party seam binding ribbon around it. I glued this panel down to a piece of Concord Crush and then popped it up on a card base of Sahara Sand. Then I took a piece of Whisper White and used my Labels framelits and cut the shape. I stamped the greeting from Grateful Greetings in Concord Crush and popped it up on the card. Then I cut hearts using the Fashionable Hearts embosslit from Pool Party and Concord Crush card stock and then attached them to the card. The last thing was to add some rhinestones. 

Have you checked out the rest of the designer's cards at the Create with Connie and Mary site? You won't be disappointed! Check them out and then create your own project using the colors shown. I always love to see what you all do with these challenges! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
