CCMC 197

Good morning everyone! I'm here with the newest challenge from the super talented ladies at Create with Connie and Mary! I hope you will play along with us this week! This week we are being challenged with color. Take a look at these fabulous colors!

Concord Crush is a color that I haven't used much and we only have until May 31st to use it! That's right! The first set of In Colors (Poppy Parade, Concord Crush, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, and Peach Parfait) will be retiring at the end of May! So I was glad to be able to use some Concord Crush. Here is what I came up with.

I found an older sketch to use with the challenge colors. I started with a card base of Confetti White and added a strip of Marina Mist that went through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. Then I took a square piece of Certainly Celery and rounded the four corners before cutting it in half. I popped this up onto the card base. Then I stamped the image from Lean on Me in black StazOn onto a 2 1/2" circle punched from Confetti White and colored it in using a blender pen and Marina Mist, Certainly Celery and Concord Crush inks. I adhered this to a scallop circle that was die cut using the Perfect Pennants die and Concord Crush card stock. I added three mini brads and popped it up onto the card. 

I do hope you will check out all the other design team member's creations! You can find them at the Create with Connie and Mary website. Don't forget to upload your creations to the website so that we can all take a look! We love to see what you come up with! And don't forget to use your Stampin' Up! supplies! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
