CCMC 189

Good morning everyone! I hope your week is going great! Today is the day we will be leaving for Phoenix!! Nick has a soccer tournament down there and we are so excited to be going! Today is also the day for another fabulous challenge at Create with Connie and Mary. This week we are being challenged with color. Take a look at these fabulous colors! 

Melon Mambo, Chocolate Chip and Lucky Limeade are the wonderful colors for this challenge! Look at what I came up with!

I think that I just love these colors together! So bright and cheery and brown looks great with these colors, too! I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the greeting from Friendly Phrases in Chocolate Chip. I added two strips of Melon Mambo card stock that were punched with the dotted ribbon scallop punch behind it and then adhered it to a piece of Chocolate Chip. This panel is popped up on a card base of Chocolate Chip. Then I stamped the flower from Mixed Bunch in Melon Mambo onto Whisper White and punched it with the Blossom punch. I used the same punch to punch another flower from Lucky Limeade. I cut two flower petals and adhered them to the back of the Melon Mambo flower. Then I stamped the flower center in Chocolate Chip on Whisper White and cut it out. This is popped up on the flower. I popped up the flower onto the card. Then I tied a bow with the white baker's twine in a clear bitty button and adhered it to the flower center. The finishing touch was to add two rhinestones under the greeting. And it's finished! Simple! 

Make sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary site to see what the other designers did with these super colors. I hope that you will be able to play along with us this week! We always love to see what you do! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
