Create With Connie and Mary 219

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Is it Thursday already?  Well of course it is, which means it's also time for another great challenge from Create With Connie and Mary!  This week is a sketch (a square one, my fave) and you are going to love it!  I don't know how Connie and Mary do it, but week after week, they create these awesome challenges!  Take a look at what's on tap for this week:



I felt like it had been ages since I used some Soft Suede so I started with that as my card base then picked a color that I thought went well with it.  I used some Baja Breeze card stock cut with the Labels Framelit then layered it with some DSP from Twitterpated.  Then I went to check out my stamps to figure out which ones had been neglected lately!

After much contemplation, I used the flowers from Stippled Blossoms which were perfect for two-step stamping  using Baja Breeze and Soft Suede.  I added some leaves stamped in Wild Wasabi which seemed to be the same tone as the other colors.  

The horizontal layer is a strip of Baja Breeze layered with some Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon, a little Linen Thread and an Antique Brad.  I added the sentiment from Just Believe at the last minute because I thought the card was missing something.  I'm glad I did because I think it makes that big label a little more interesting!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to pop on over to Create With Connie and Mary to check out the inspiration from the design team!
