CCMC 365

Good morning everyone! I hope your week is going super! Mine is going way too fast! I have training tomorrow and then meetings on Friday and Monday school starts! Today I will enjoy a pedicure and then my last hours of freedom - lol!

Today's card was inspired by the sketch at Create with Connie and Mary! They have a new challenge every Thursday so I am getting this one in just under the wire!

  • Card base is Tip Top Taupe
  • Stamp the flowers image from Birthday Blossoms onto the card base using Tip Top Taupe ink
  • Adhere a thin strip of So Saffron to the card base
  • Flag the end of a strip of Mint Macaron using the Triple Banner punch and adhere to card
  • Cut the label shape from Very Vanilla using the Lots of Labels framelits
  • Stamp the greeting onto the label using Tip Top Taupe ink and adhere to card using dimensionals
  • Stamp the flower and leaf images onto a piece of Very Vanilla using Momento ink
  • Color the images in using Calypso Coral and Mint Macaron inks and an aqua painter filled with alcohol
  • Punch the flower out using the Pansy punch and cut the leaves out by hand
  • Adhere the leaves to the back of the flower and then adhere flower to label with dimensionals
  • Thread a piece of linen thread through a gold basic metal button and tie a bow then adhere to flower center
