CCMC 289

Good morning, Friends! Wow! It's Thursday again! And another great challenge has been posted at Create with Connie and Mary! This week it's a sketch challenge! Take a look!

And my card...

I kept it simple and used the colors from the Sweet Sorbet designer paper pack. Here are my card details…

  • Card base is Sahara Sand
  • Layer of Sahara Sand was run through the Big Shot using the Decorative Dots embossing folder and then adhered to the card base
  • Adhere a thin strip of Basic Black card stock
  • Stamp the greeting from Perfect Pennants in black StazOn onto Whisper White and then adhere panel to a piece of Basic Black
  • Adhere panel to card with dimensionals
  • Flag the bottom of a strip of Pool Party and create a point from a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe then adhere to card
  • Stamp flower image from Petite Petals in black StazOn onto a piece of Summer Starfruit and punch out with the Petite Petals punch
  • Adhere flower to card with dimensionals
  • Add a Whisper White candy dot to flower center
