Aren't the colors below just awesome to pair up? Where did they come from? Why Create with Connie & Mary of course! We would love to have you join us for the color challenge below:

And my card for this week:

I decided to go "clean & simple" this week and keep a lot of the "vanilla space" open. Very Vanilla has been my go-to color lately instead of Whisper White. It just softens things up and gives the card a more elegant look:

I added a triple layer of cardstock using the Adorning Accents Edgelits Die and then adding paper piercing with the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack. Don't you just love the coordinating pierced holes:

  3. Very clever way to get the three colors in the layered cuts. Great card!

  4. Beautiful, Debbie! The Summer Starfruit looks fabulous on this card, especially when nestled between the other two colors.

  5. Lovin' all the layers! They really stand out on the Vanilla background - pretty!
