Create With Connie and Mary 212

Thursday, August 2, 2012

Are you ready for a fantastic color challenge from Create With Connie and Mary this week?  When I first saw these colors I was in heaven because they're subtle, bold and bright all at the same time!  Check it out:



Sometimes I think that Sahara Sand gets lost in the Crumb Cake shuffle, because this is a lovely neutral color all on its own.  I should definitely use it more often when I am contemplating neutral and earthy colors.  A big thanks to Connie and Mary for reminding me that this color has been languishing in my stash for a while!

Now that I've got these three colors together - ooh la la!  A perfect CAS combination.  And perfect for the sketch challenge this week at Less is More.  I started with the script from En Francais stamped in Sahara Sand then added one of the floral stamps from Summer Silhouettes stamped in Basic Black and Real Red.  I just love how the flowers jump off the card!  I followed this all up with a simple sentiment from Bring On the Cake.

I think you should run, don't walk, to Create With Connie and Mary so that you can see all the lovely inspiration from the design team.  Then dig out your stamps and get all inky with us!  We love to see what you do!
