CCMC 339

Good morning everyone! It's time for another fabulous Thursday challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary team! This week we have a fun sketch!

Once again I kept my card very simple! I also had fun playing with the new stamp set Painted Petals!

I mimicked the lines on the sketch by using the stamp images from the set!

  • Card base is Sahara Sand
  • Stamp the lines and dots images from Painted Petals stamp set onto the card base using the Sahara Sand ink
  • Use the Ornate Tag Topper punch to punch the top of a piece of Whisper White card stock
  • Stamp the stems image using Wild Wasabi ink and the flower images using Daffodil Delight ink onto the tag and stamp the sentiment using Blackberry Bliss ink
  • Use the Large Scallop edgelit to cut the edge of a piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock and adhere to the side of the tag
  • Adhere tag to card with dimensionals
  • Fold a piece of Blackberry Bliss stitched satin ribbon in half and adhere to top of tag
  • Thread a piece of silver baker's twine through a basic metal button and tie and bow then adhere to tag
  • Add three rhinestones to card
Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary site to see what the other designers did with this sketch! I hope you will play along with us this week! We love to see what you all come up with!
