CCMC 201

Good morning everyone! It's time for another fun challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! Did you have fun with last week's "Celebration" challenge? I saw a lot of fantastic cards! Thanks so much for celebrating with us! This week we are back to our regularly scheduled challenges and we have a sketch to work with. Take a look!

I think this sketch is so interesting! You could do so many fun things with it! And I was inspired by the Rich Razzleberry color and wanted to use it in my card. Here is what I came up with.

Instead of having my flower stem hang off the main panel, I chose to stamp it on the Pear Pizzazz. So that's how I started my card. I stamped the stem from Fabulous Florets in Pear Pizzazz onto Pear Pizzazz and then ran that through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder. This is glued to the Whisper White card base. Then I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the stem again in Pear Pizzazz and the greeting from Friendly Phrases in Rich Razzleberry. Before putting the three silver brads in, I adhered this to a strip of Rich Razzleberry and flagged the ends. Then the panel is popped up onto the card making sure to line up the stem. I stamped the flower in Rich Razzleberry onto a scrap piece of Whisper White and cut it out. This is popped up onto the card.

Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary site to see what the other fabulous designers did with this sketch! Everyone always has such different takes on these challenges! And that's why we love to see what you do! Be sure to upload your creation so we can take a look! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
