CCMC 264

Good morning, Friends! It's that time again! Create with Connie and Mary have another fabulous challenge for you! Check it out!

It's a beautiful color challenge! Blushing Bride, Pistachio Pudding and Smoky Slate! Check out how my card came together!

Love these colors together! I wanted to do something other than flowers but I could get flowers out of my head when these are so perfect for flowers - lol! So I used a card from the catalog to help me put this together. Here are the details:

  • Card base is Smoky Slate
  • Layer of Smoky Slate that was run through the Big Shot using the Modern Mosaic TIEF
  • A circle was punched using the 2 1/2" circle punch and then the layer was sponged with Smoky Slate ink
  • Pop up panel onto card base
  • Stamp flower from Flower Shop with Blushing Bride ink onto Whisper White and punch out with Pansy punch
  • Punch a flower from Blushing Bride card stock with the Blossom punch and sponge edges with Blushing Bride ink
  • Adhere flowers together with a dimensional
  • Punch leaves from Pistachio Pudding using the large oval punch and adhere to back of flowers
  • Adhere flowers to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp greeting from Petite Pairs in Smoky Slate onto a strip of Whisper White and flag the end
  • Adhere to card by tucking end under flowers
  • Add large rhinestone to flower center
There you have it!! Be sure to check out what the other designers did by going to the Create with Connie and Mary website! I hope you will be inspired to play along with us this week! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  1. Beautiful! I love the way you showcased the Smoky Slate! Love the little peek-a-boo window!

  2. Love the background of Smoky Slate with the soft flower on the front! Great job with the color challenge this week!

  3. So soft and pretty! You really created a lovely feminine card! I know what you mean about the colors - they begged for some flowers.

  4. I LOVE casing those fabulous cards from the catalog! Your card is great for any occasion and such an inspiration!

  5. Gorgeous card! I love the look of the Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding flower against the Smokey Slate card. It really makes the flower stand out!

  6. Great idea with the hole on the front of your card and just a small splash of white!
