CCMC354It’s time for another GREAT challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and this week it is a fun color challenge:  Bermuda Bay, Tangelo Twist and Gold.  How fun is that!

Recently I’ve been on a geometrical shapes kick.  Since the Geometrical set and matching Triangle Punch is retiring I thought I’d use it for my card this week.  It worked out perfectly!

Here’s the details –

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  Stamp greeting using Memento Black and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp 3 each of triangle image using Bermuda Bay and striped image using Tangelo Twist, punch out using Triangle punch, also punch out 3 Gold Foil Triangles.  Add triangles to card front.

Yep…SUPER SIMPLE!

And don’t forget to head over to Create with Connie and Mary to check out what the design team did with this delightful challenge!

Have you ever sat down to make a card and messed with it, and messed with it, and messed with it and then just finally said ENOUGH!  Well…that was this card.  LOVE the colors…but just having a tough time sometimes using things from the Occasions Mini.  (That and my mojo had gone south for the winter and I think is sitting on a beach somewhere without me!)  This is actually the THIRD card I made for the challenge today and I just said ENOUGH!!!

Here’s the details…

  • Daffodil Delight – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
