CCMC 225

Good morning everyone! And welcome to another Thursday challenge from the team at Create with Connie and Mary! I hope that you are inspired and will be able to play along with us this week! This week we are being challenged with a fabulous sketch! Take a look

Love this super simple and clean sketch! And that's what I tried to do on my card. Take a look!

I also wanted to do a fall theme. I layered a piece of Orchard Harvest designer paper onto a piece of Early Espresso and then wrapped a piece of Early Espresso 1/8" taffeta ribbon around this. This panel is then popped up onto a card base of Very Vanilla. Then I took a piece of Very Vanilla and used the Apothecary Accents to cut the shape. I stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Early Espresso and then used the paper piercing essentials pack to pierce the shape inside the frame. On a scrap of Very Vanilla I stamped the flowers from Perfectly Preserved in More Mustard and the stems in Lucky Limeade. These are cut out with the Cannery framelits dies. Early Espresso brads are put into the flower centers and then popped up onto the frame. The stems are adhered with glue dots. The frame is popped up onto the card. 

Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary website to see what the other fabulous designers did with this sketch! I hope to see your creation uploaded on their site! We always love to see what you do!
