CCMC 204

Good morning everyone! I know that I have been very sporadic with my posts lately. My parents are visiting and we are having a great time! I have chosen to take some time off from stamping and posting everyday. But I will be back to regular posts in a while so keep checking back! I do have my Thursdays challenge cards ready to post and today is another great challenge from the wonderful ladies at Create with Connie and Mary! This week we are being challenged with color. 

Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade and Early Espresso are the colors that we are to work with. Very pretty and spring like! Here is what I came up with!

I came across a layout that I really fell in love with. I did use retiring stamps and today is the last day to get these!!! Wow! I can't believe that we get to order from the new catalog tomorrow! Be sure to get your retiring products today! Back to the card... My card base is Wisteria Wonder. I used a 1" circle punch to round the bottom right hand corner. I added a layer of Lucky Limeade designer paper. Then I took a strip of Early Espresso card stock and flagged one end and then adhered it to the card. I took a piece of Calypso Coral card stock and stamped the greeting from Thank You Kindly in Early Espresso and then adhered it to the card. I stamped the outline stamps from Flower Fancy in Early Espresso and the solid images in Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade. I cut these out and adhered the leaves behind the flower. I added a flower brad (also retiring) and popped this up onto a panel of Whisper White which is also popped up onto the card. 

Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary website to see their new look! They also are offering early bird pricing on their New Catalog Edition! So many great designers and so many great projects for a great price! Don't forget to make a project using these fun colors and upload it to their site so that we can all take a look! We look forward to seeing what you do! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
