CCMC 209

Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a great 4th!! It's time again for this week's challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! This week we are being challenged with a sketch. Take a look!

What a fun sketch! So versatile and simple! I know that I will use this one again! Since I had the stamp set, Moving Forward, already out on my desk, I decided to use it here. So this is what I came up with.

I used my Color Coach to come up with these colors. The front of my card base is Marina Mist and I ran it through the Big Shot with the Chevron embossing folder. Then I added a piece of Summer Starfruit. On top of this I added two strips of designer paper from the Polka Dot Parade designer paper pack. Both of the ends of the strips had the ends flagged before adhering. Then I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the image from Moving Forward in Marina Mist. I added a strip of Real Red card stock and then three silver brads before popping up this panel onto the card.

Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary website for more inspiration! Then create your own project using this sketch. Remember that we are a SUO (Stampin' Up! Only) challenge. I can't wait to see what you come up with! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
