Create with Connie and Mary 224 Color Challenge

Yeah! Today is Create with Connie and Mary day which means it must be Thursday! Only one more day to go until FRIDAY! How are we all doing? Things are good on my end, no complaints. So, this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge is a color challenge…

I was a happy boy when I saw that it included one of my favorite colors, Island Indigo! My card starts off with just that, a base of Island Indigo Card Stock. The background is a piece of Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper. I stamped the Daffodil Delight flagged piece with the Netting Background Stamp in Daffodil Delight. The Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch is used to make the edges with Island Indigo. The completed flagged piece is then adhered to the card with SNAIL. The image is from the Friendship Preserves Stamp Set and is stamped in Island Indigo and again in Lucky Limeade. I used the Window Frames Framelits Dies to cut each one out. I cut off the top and bottom of the Island Indigo one and then  mounted it to the Lucky Limeade piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Some Sticky Strip holds the piece of Island Indigo 3/8″ Ruffled Ribbon behind the stamped piece and I used some more Stampin’ Dimensionals to mount it to the card. This would be a great quick and easy card to make for a thank you or even a birthday. I hope that you enjoyed my Guest Designer Card for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. Before I go I wanted to mention that Connie and Mary have a new subscription called Card “Create”tions. Scroll down past my card and see what this three week subscription has to offer. Thank for stopping by and visiting with me today. I hope that you all have a great Thursday!
