CCMC #341!

We are into Week #3 of our Spring Collection at Create with Connie & Mary and what a blast we are having presenting projects to our subscribers. Have you joined us yet and if not, what are you waiting for? So many projects, so many tutorials, you have to see it for yourself!

Okay, this week we have a sketch challenge for you and make sure you come back on Saturday as we will have a fun "Blog Hop" for you! Here's the sketch:

And this is the card I came up with....love the colors!

At first glance you may think I used designer paper for the flowered background....nope! I made it myself using the Painted Petals stamp set. The dotted layers and the striped layer are designer paper and that's where my colors came from:

Love the addition of the banners, Rhinestone Jewels and Baker's Twine and the Blackberry Bliss Cardstock really shines don't you think?

Here's what I used today for Stampin' Up! products:
  • Stamp Sets: Painted Petals, Sheltering Tree
  • Cardstock: Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White
  • Inks: Craft White, Blackberry Bliss, Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi
  • Accessories: Rhinestone Jewels, Painted Blooms Twine
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Banners Framelit Dies, Stampin' Dimensionals
  • DSP: Painted Blooms
Thanks for stopping by to visit me today!
