CCMC 227

Hello everyone!! Time for another Thursday challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary team! This week Connie and Mary have a little "twist" to go along with the sketch challenge! First, take a look at this very fun sketch!

Great sketch, huh!!! But this week's challenge is not just about the sketch. It's also about making a shaped card! I don't usually do these kind of cards but I was really excited about using a new die. I got this die right when the new catalog came out but I haven't used it yet! Perfect time!

I took an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of Very Vanilla and folded it in half - which makes a regular card. Then I placed it on the Oval Accent die where the fold of the card was just under the top of the die. Then I ran it through the Big Shot to cut out the shape. Then I added two strips of champagne glimmer paper. I used my snips to cut the strips to the shape of the card. Then I stamped the verse from Rejoicing with You in Elegant Eggplant onto the card and the image also in Elegant Eggplant onto a scrap of Very Vanilla. I cut the image out and popped it up onto the card. I added five pearls that spray out of the trumpet. Simple! I do love how this turned out and it will fit inside a regular envelope! 

To get more inspiration be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary website! I hope you will find some time to play along with us this week! We always love to see what you do with the challenges! This challenge will go for two weeks (due to the Thanksgiving holiday).
