CCMC 203

It's the LAST day of school!!! Boy is my son super excited!!! And so am I - lol! It will be so nice to have some time to not have so many scheduled activities! We will still have a few but not as many. Today is also another challenge from the ladies at Create with Connie and Mary! This week we are being challenged with a sketch. Take a look!

And my card...

I wanted to focus on some retiring products so I puled out some retiring stamps. I stamped the Medallion background stamp on Crumb Cake card stock in Crumb Cake ink. Then I stamped it again on a tag that I made from Very Vanilla card stock. I stamped it off before I stamped it on the tag to make it lighter. I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink. I adhered a strip of Chocolate Chip card stock to the card. To the tag I added a piece of the Chocolate Chip scallop dots ribbon with a 5/16" Chocolate Chip brad. I stamped the greeting from Thank You Kindly on a strip of Very Vanilla and flagged both ends. This is attached to the tag and the tag is popped up on the card. Very monochromatic and simple!!

Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary website to see what the other fabulous designers did with this sketch! Be sure to upload your creation to the site so that we can all see what you did! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  1. Love the neutrals on your card! Pretty use of that retiring stamp, too! Great job with the sketch this week!

  2. You are so you lined up the stamped image on the tag with the background image! And wow, school is done as of today for you and your son, we still have 3 weeks here!

  3. what a simply beautiful card. and I loved the idea of stamping off before you stamped on the vanilla card stock. I think the lighter 'stamp' is perfect! TFS

  4. Really pretty! Clean and simple, but so lovely!
