Create With Connie and Mary 214

Thursday, August 16, 2012

This week at Create With Connie and Mary is a great color challenge that uses a couple of the new In Colors, Midnight Muse and Gumball Green as well as the bright and cheery Daffodil Delight.  These colors are fabulous together!

I've seen some pretty cards where flowers are created by layering some cardstock punched with the Boho Blossoms punch and I wanted to give it a try for this card.  I started with the flourish from Everything Eleanor stamped in Gumball Green then I punched the largest flower in Midnight Muse and the smallest in Daffodil Delight.  I had a little trouble deciding where to place them on my flourish because I didn't want to cover it too much, but I think they look ok!  Once I had them placed I thought the flowers looked a little plain so I added a Basic Pearl in the Center.

I really like how this turned out.  It's simple and yet elegant.  To keep it on the less-fussy side I wanted a simple sentiment to go with it that wasn't too fancy so I used this one from Just Believe.  The good thing about a card like this is that it's easy to reproduce and can be used for a lot of different occasions.

Head on over to Create With Connie and Mary to check out the inspiration from the design team, then link up your own creation!  We love to see what you do!

Gorgeous Jen and a fabulous colour combination! I've not been visiting much either as the summer holidays makes everything go crazy round here! I've not been getting posts through either - I think it's a problem with communication between blogger and feedblitz...
