CCMC 193

Good morning everyone! I hope you are having a fantastic week! Today is Thursday and time for another great challenge with the wonderful ladies at Create with Connie and Mary! This week we are being challenged with color. Take a look at these fantastic colors!

The challenge colors are Peach Parfait, Lucky Limeade and Pool Party. And here is what I came up with!

I found a simple layout in a magazine to help me bring this card together. I started with a card base of Lucky Limeade. Then I took another piece of Lucky Limeade and stamped the border stamp from Fresh Vintage along the bottom in Lucky Limeade. This is adhered to the card base. For my focal point, I took a piece of Very Vanilla and stamped the floral image from the same set in Peach Parfait, Pool Party and Lucky Limeade. I rounded the top right hand corner and tied some Lucky Limeade ribbon around the panel. Below, I stamped the greeting from Friendly Phrases in Lucky Limeade. This panel is popped up onto the card. My final touch was to add a flower that was punched from Peach Parfait with the itty bitty shapes punch pack and add a pearl. 

Be sure to stop by the Create with Connie and Mary site to see what the other fabulous designers came up with. Then create your own project and upload it so we can all see, too! We always love to see what you all do with the challenges! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
