Create with Connie and Mary 229

Good morning everyone! Yeah, it’s Friday! My favorite day of the week. What do you all have planned for this weekend? I have a ton of crafting to do, still want to get my Christmas cards out this weekend. I’m off to Manhattan on Sunday to see some peeps and feed the frog. Fingers crossed that I get it all done! ๐Ÿ™‚

Today’s post is for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary. I’m not gonna lie, it was little weird not posting on Wednesday night. It’s my first week back as a player and we have a fun funky sketch to work with…

I wanted to do something monochromatic so I went with Cherry Cobbler as my main color. And to that the base of the card is Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. For the background I stamped a piece of Very Vanilla with the Snowflake Soiree Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler in a pattern to make my own Designer Series Paper! I used two pieces of paper from the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack for the strips across the lower half of the card. The ornament is from the Delightful Decorations Stamp Set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and punched out with the Ornament Punch. I stamped the greeting in Cherry Cobbler from the Greetings of the Season Stamp Set and punched it out with the Extra Large Oval Punch. Both are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The ornament gets a heavy dose of bling from some Basic Jewels Rhinestones. I’m really happy with the way the card turned out and I love the Snowflake Soiree background. I hope that you enjoyed and are a little inspired by my Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge card for this week. Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you have an awesome Friday!
