CCMC 238

Good morning everyone! I'm here today with the latest challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary team! This week we are being challenged with color! Take a look!

Aren't these great spring-like colors?! I am so excited that our temperatures have warmed up slightly and that the snow is melting! But our driveway is sure a muddy mess! Anywho, these colors were so fun to work with! Take a look at my creation!

I did end up keeping my card very simple! And oh, how I do love this Oh, Hello stamp set! I seem to be using it quite a bit! Hope your not too tired of it! But for this card I started out by embossing a piece of Island Indigo with the Honeycomb embossing folder and then tied a piece of Calypso Coral ruffled ribbon around it. This is then popped up onto a card base of Island Indigo. Then I used the Ovals framelits dies and cut an oval from Whisper White. I stamped the greeting from Oh, Hello in Island Indigo and popped it up onto the card. I stamped the flower with the Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade markers and carefully cut it out. This is then popped up onto the oval. I added three small rhinestones for some bling!

Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary website to see the fabulous creations from the rest of the design team! So many great ideas! I hope that you will inspire us with your creation by playing along this week!
