CCMC 219

Good morning everyone! It's time for the Thursday challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary team! This week we are being challenged with a sketch! Take a look!

And my card...

I wasn't sure if I was completely happy with this but I decided to go with it. I had seen some cards done with this set where the image wasn't colored. And I thought that it was a great way to show off this stamp! Cause sometimes you just don't want to have to color it all in, right? :) And because I didn't color in the image, the card came together very quickly! I took a piece of Very Vanilla and ran it through the Big Shot with the Apothecary Accents framelits die. Then I stamped the image from Winter Memories in Always Artichoke to the left. I cut off the other end of the frame and adhered it to a card base of Always Artichoke. Then I added a strip of Cherry Cobbler. For my two accent pieces I cut two snowflakes using the Snow Flurry die from silver glimmer paper. The smaller one is adhered to the card with a rhinestone in the center. And the bigger one is popped up onto the card. I stamped the sentiment in Always Artichoke onto a strip of Very Vanilla and flagged one end. This is adhered to the snowflake. 

Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary website to see what the other fabulous designers have done with this sketch! I hope you get inspired to play along with us this week!

  1. This came out great.. I really like those colors together. This would be a great stamp set for the Spotlighting Technique too. The addition of the Glitter snowflakes really makes it pop!

  2. I love this card so much I "cased" it for a workshop last night! Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. I love that you created such a festive card using just two colors and some glimmer paper! I love that image and the snowflakes are perfect!

  4. Super how just a little bit of Cherry Cobbler makes the other two colors really pop and the cute little banner looks wonderful coming off of the snowflake!

  5. REally fun card! Love those glimmer snowflakes!
