CCMC 208

Good morning, Friends! Time for another great challenge from the talented ladies at Create with Connie and Mary! This week we are being challenged with color. Take a look at what they came up with.

Basic Grey, Real Red and Pumpkin Pie are the colors to work with. I had a hard time trying to put these together so I finally scrapped what I was doing and went really simple! Take a look!

I used a lot of white to help me balance these colors and help them work together. I stamped the flourish from Everything Eleanor in Basic Grey onto Whisper White and the greeting from Friendly Phrases is also stamped in Basic Grey. Then I popped this panel up onto a card base of Whisper White. Then I stamped the flower - also from Everything Eleanor - onto a scrap piece of Whisper White in Basic Grey ink. I used my Real Red and Pumpkin Pie markers to color in the image. Then I cut it out and popped it up onto the card. I added a few pearls to make it sparkle! And there you have it! Super simple!!

Be sure to stop by the Create with Connie and Mary site to see what the other designers came up with. Then create your own project using these colors and post it so that we can all see what you did! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
