Create with Connie & Mary-CCMC-128

My personal challenge to you today my blog readers, is to join us in a color challenge at Create with Connie & Mary.........I want to see your creations for myself........come on.........join us!! You have a whole week to create something and post it for all of us to peak at!

Sorry the photo is a little fuzzy, I tried to blow it up big enough and as I do that, it distorts and fuzzes a little. The colors for this months color challenge are:
  • Night of Navy
  • Old Olive
  • River Rock
  • Elegant Eggplant

If you don't have some of any of those colors, you can substitute for something similar:

My Card:

Can you hear the music playing in the background? I thought adding the sheet music would create music in your ears! The DSP I used comes in a vanilla color so I used my "Brayer" and rolled it in "River Rock ink" and colored the DSP to "River Rock".

The wreath is created by layering cutouts with the "5-Petal Punch" in "Old Olive" cardstock.
I added some branches that I cut out using the "Bird Punch" in "River Rock" and "Night of Navy". Add some bling to a few of the branches using your "Glue Pen" and "Dazzling Diamonds Glitter".

Other Stampin' Up! supplies used:
  • Tools: 5 Petal Punch, Punch Pack (flower), Bird Punch, Sponge Daubers, Glue Pen,
  • Accessories: Brads, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Stampin' Dimensionals
  • DSP: Newsprint
  • Cardstock: Old Olive, River Rock, Elegant Eggplant, Night of Navy
  • Stamps: Come to Bethleham
  • Inks: Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive, River Rock

Okay, now get off your tush and go create yourself a card to join in our challenge. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
