CCMC 205

Good morning, Friends! I hope your week is going super! My son and I are headed to a baseball tournament later today. The tournament will be tomorrow and Saturday. Sure hope the team does well! Should be fun! It's also time for another great challenge from Create with Connie and Mary! This week we are being challenged with the following sketch: 

Such a fun, clean and simple sketch! I love it!!! At the time I did these challenges I did not have my new products so I am using current product - just not brand new. Stay tuned, though! I have been playing!!! Here's what I did come up with:

I really dearly love this set, Lean on Me. It makes the cutest and most super easy cards ever! I do love how this turned out! I punched a 2 1/2" circle from Whisper White and stamped the image from Lean on Me in black StazOn. Then I watercolored it with Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight and a little Blush Blossom inks and my blender pen. I adhered this to a scallop circle of Island Indigo that was die cut with the Perfect Pennants die. I ran a piece of Whisper White through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. I added a strip of designer paper from the Summer Smooches collection that has one end flagged. I popped up my scallop circle panel and then added a butterfly that was cut from Daffodil Delight with the Beautiful Wings embosslit and a brad. Then this panel is popped up onto a card base of Whisper White.
