CCMC 195

Good morning, Friends! It's time to be challenge by our friends at Create with Connie and Mary! This week we are being challenged with color. Take a look at these colors!

Poppy Parade, So Saffron and Basic Grey. Now who would have thought about putting those colors together? Certainly not me. But it all came together surprisingly easy for me. Here is what I created!

Not too bad, eh? I kept the layout very simple (my middle name - lol). I was actually inspired by a layout in the catalog. I love yellow and grey together but putting the red in there with them just threw me. But I do love the final result! My card base is Basic Grey. Then I took a piece of Whisper White and round the top corners with a corner rounder. I took it to the Big Shot and used the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. I took a strip of So Saffron and used the scallop edge border punch on it and tucked it behind the white panel before popping it up on the card. Then I stamped the tea cup from Tea Shoppe in Poppy Parade onto a scrap of Whisper White and cut it out. This, too, is popped up on the card. Then I took a strip of Whisper White and stamped the sentiment in Basic Grey. My final touch was to add three little pearls to the flower centers. I flagged one end and tucked the other under the tea cup. Easy!!

Make sure to stop by the Create with Connie and Mary site to see more wonderful inspiration! Then create your own project using these colors and upload it to the site so that we can all look, too! I do love to see what you all come up with! Such wonderful talent out there!! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
