CCMC 223

Greetings Friends!! It's Thursday once again and time for another great challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary team! This week we are being challenged with a sketch! Check out this fun sketch!

Something a little different for me but I like that! I like that these challenges get me out of my box! And I like how my card turned out! 

I kept my card pretty simple. I took a piece of Crumb Cake card stock and layered a piece of Orchard Harvest designer paper at an angle and then wrapped a piece of Raspberry Ripple stitched satin ribbon around it before adhering the panel to a card base of Crumb Cake. Then I layered a piece of Crumb Cake to a piece of Early Espresso and popped it up onto the card. Then I stamped the images from Perfectly Preserved onto Very Vanilla - the jar in Early Espresso, the lid in Island Indigo, the flower in More Mustard, the apple in Raspberry Ripple and the stem in Lucky Limeade. All these were cut out using the Cannery framelits dies. The lid is adhered to the jar and then popped up onto the card. I popped up the apple and tucked the stem behind it. I put a neutrals brad through the flower center and popped it up onto the jar lid. Finally, I stamped the greeting from Made for You in Early Espresso. A fun fall card!
