CCMC 256

Good morning, Friends! I am excited to show you this week's Create with Connie and Mary challenge! It's a color challenge! And take a look at these beautiful colors!

Island Indigo, Summer Starfruit, and Early Espresso! And here is what I came up with!

I used the CAS(E) This Sketch from last week to help me make this! So with all the new stuff I got I had to go and use an "old" stamp - lol!! I stamped the flourish from Everything Eleanor in Early Espresso onto Early Espresso and then punched the bottom using the scallop edge border punch. I added a strip of Island Indigo and then tied a piece of Summer Starfruit around this before adhering it to a card base of Very Vanilla. Then I stamped the label image onto Very Vanilla using Summer Starfruit and fussy cut it out. I used the flourish stamp again and "strategically" stamped it onto the label with Early Espresso. The label is popped up in just the right place onto the card. I stamped the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Early Espresso and flagged the end. This is adhered to the label. Then I stamped the bird in Island Indigo and fussy cut this out, too. It is popped up onto the card.

  1. Gorgeous! I just love this set, looks great with this weeks color combo.

  2. What a great idea to layer the flourish like you did! That little bird is my favorite image in this set and I love how you used him to anchor the sentiment. Darling card, Deb.

  3. Deb thanks for your comment on my submission for this week's Connie and Marie Colour Challenge. I wandered over here to thank you and fell in love with the card you made. I really like the Everything Eleanor staff set and it looks beautiful as a background flourish on your card. TFS.

  4. How in the heck did you line up those swirlies on two layers? Wow, what a beautiful card!

  5. I love this! Wow...strategically is right! I'd never be able to do that!
