CCMC 240

Good morning, Friends! It's the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday challenge! This week we have a color challenge. Take a look at these wonderful colors!!

Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Basic Grey. Aren't these colors just wonderful?! I do love grey and yellow together anyway and then adding a pop of that bright pink is just delightful! Take a look at how I put them together!

I stamped the swirl image from Everything Eleanor in Basic Grey onto a card base of Basic Grey. Then I added a strip of Basic Grey designer paper with one end flagged. I stamped the label image in Daffodil Delight and then the greeting from Perfectly Penned in Basic Grey onto Whisper White and cut it out. This is popped up onto the card. Then I took a piece of Melon Mambo card stock to the Big Shot and used the Beautiful Wings embosslit to cut a butterfly. I added a mini brad and adhered it to the card. Finally I added three pearls to the label. 

More inspiration can be found at the Create with Connie and Mary website so be sure to visit! I hope you'll play along and show us your wonderful creations using these colors, too! We always love to see what you do! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
