Good morning blog readers. I have a sketch challenge to show you this morning from Create with Connie & Mary: So many elements to pick from. I wanted to make sure my card wasn't overly busy. I don't like clutter in my cards. I think I achieved that in this card:

I started out by embossing my "Melon Mambo" cardstock layer with the new "Flower Garden Impresssions Folder". I carefully positioned my folder so that the flower image would be embossed horizontally. I also opted to use hearts for some of my elements. Hearts are not just for Valentine's:

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Concord Crush
  • DSP: Brights Patterns Paper Pack
  • Accessories: Rhinestone Jewels, Satin Ribbon in Old Olive
  • Tools: Heart Punch, Heart to Heart Punch, Flower Garden Impressions Folder
  • Inks: Concord Crush
  • Stamp Set: Word Play
I would really love to hear from you today. Whether by comment or coming along to play with us!

I also want to tell you how much fun I am having designing for the Summer Mini Edition Subscription side of Create with Connie & Mary. Even though we've started show-casing our projects & tutorials this week, it is still not too late to buy a subscription. You can join in at anytime and view all of the projects that have been shown so far plus more....daily for 5 weeks!


  1. You nailed it! I too don't like alot of clutter. Great color combo and those hearts are arranged perfectly!!

  2. I love those hearts and embossing. I love the colors and your card! Hugs,

  3. I also don't like a card that's too busy. But I do like this! I am always on the lookout for nice cards that I can make up ahead of time for my group of special people to make and give. This is a REALLLLY NICE card! Thank you for sharing.

  4. Great choice to keep it simple and wonderful colours this week!
