We are well into Week 1 of our Spring Collection at Create with Connie & Mary. If you haven't subscribed yet, you are missing out on some very fabulous projects...but wait...you can still sign up! 

And while there, you can see our new challenge cards for this week's sketch challenge:

What a great sketch we have for you this week. I decided to dig out a new stamp set I haven't used yet:

This stamp set is called "Birthday Bash" and we have coordinating "Balloon Framelits Dies" to cut out all the pieces. I embossed the bottom of my card using the "Delicate Designs Embossing Folder":

For the strips in the sketch I added designer paper from the "Celebrate Today" pack. The little confetti even has gold in it:

Make sure you visit Create with Connie & Mary to participate in our challenge this week and to sign up for our Spring Collection!
