Peaceful Petals

ThursChallengeBlogHopBadgeOh my!  The Create with Connie and Mary blog has been down due to a cyber attack on typepad!  We did know they are working on it as fast as they could but we wanted to make sure, no matter what, we brought you our Thursday Challenge!  (It IS back up now!)  So…we are doing something fun…A Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge Design Team Hop!  Same wonderful ideas…but in a hop instead!  So check out the hop and then, as always, head over to Create to join the challenge!  If you are going forward through the hop you arrived here from Connie Babbert’s Inkspired Treasures blog!  What a GREAT card!

CCMC300This week we have a fun color challenge for you.  The challenge is to use Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Basic Grey.  They colors are from the Celebrations Banner Add-On kit and I used some of my leftover pieces from these kits for my card.  I really like these colors.  They are a bit different and oh my…the designers all have a very different take on it!

CCMC300Here’s the details…

  • Calypso Coral – 5 1/2 x 8 12 folded
  • Whisper White – 4 7/8 x 3 5/8, run through the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder and layer onto Basic Grey 5 x 3 3/4.
  • Wrap piece of Calypso Coral Chevron Ribbon and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Take tag from Celebrations Banner Kit, stamp Hello using Basic Grey and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp flower from Peaceful Petals using Versamark on a print from the Calypso Coral Add-On Kit, black emboss and cut out.  Use Calypso Coral to add some accents and color the center with Basic Grey marker.
  • Cut out 2 Little Leaves from Basic Grey, add behind flower and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add some Basic Grey Candy Dots to finish it off.

So…now it is off to Deb Currier’s blog to check our her wonderful card…she has such a wonderful Clean and Simple Style…I always LOVE her stuff!
