CCMC 261

Good morning, Friends! I'm here with this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday challenge! This week we are being challenged with a sketch! Take a look!

Love this sketch! So many wonderful possibilities! I kept pretty much to the sketch and I used the Color Coach to help me with some color choices. Take a look!

My Color Coach suggested Soft Suede, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight and I pulled out the Morning Meadow hostess set to pull it all together! Here are the card details:

  • Card base is Soft Suede
  • Layer of Soft Suede
  • On layer of Soft Suede stamp branch image from Morning Meadow in Soft Suede then pierce circle using the Essentials paper piercing pack
  • Stamp greeting in Soft Suede
  • Use dotted ribbon scallop punch to punch a strip of Daffodil Delight and adhere to Soft Suede panel
  • Pop panel up onto card
  • On Whisper White stamp bird image in Pool Party, cut out and pop up onto card
  • From Daffodil Delight card stock punch flower using itty bitty shapes punch pack and adhere to bird
  • Adhere a rhinestone to flower center
Super simple! Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary website to see what the other fabulous designers did with this sketch! I do hope you will be inspired to play along with us this week! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  1. I ADORE this card!! I love its simplicity & color combo! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I really like how the bird pops against the Soft Suede and the paper piercing is perfect for the layout!

  3. Very pretty! Love how the bird takes center stage! I also love that little bit of Daffodil Delight peeking out from behind the Suede and on the bird. That really pops!

  4. Beautiful card, simple and elegant. I love it!
