Create with Connie and Mary 242

Woo hoo! It’s FRIDAY!! I am so happy that this week is over, it seemed much longer than any week in recent history. Work was really busy and will be for a while, can’t wait for that to stop too. How are you all doing today? Well, it snowed here last night and we got about 3 inches. On a positive note it’s supposed to be in the 50’s over the weekend, crazy weather but I’ll take it!

For today’s post I have my Create with Connie and Mary Challenge card. This week the dynamic duo have given us a color challenge…

I have to say that these are some of my favorite colors, especially Summer Starfruit. 🙂 My inspiration for today’s card came from Pinterest. The base of my card is Summer Starfruit Card Stock. I took a piece of Very Vanilla used my Summer Starfruit Stampin’ Write Marker and the Color Spritzer Tool (that I forget I have even though it was one of the first tools that I got from Stampin’ Up!) to make a nice subtle background for my card. The large flagged piece is Raspberry Ripple. I used the Borders Scoring Plate with my Simply Scored Scoring Tool to make the zig zag pattern on it and flagged the bottom. Some SNAIL adheres it to the card. Next up is a piece of Primrose Petals that I cut out with the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlit and cut in half. The greeting is from the Oh, Hello! Stamp Set and is stamped in Raspberry Ripple on Very Vanilla. I spritzed it too and put a thin strip of Primrose Petals across the top before I flagged the bottom. Behind it is a piece of Summer Starfruit that is again flagged. I used one of the Designer Builder Brads on the top. For the center image I stamped the banner image from the Itty Bitties Stamp Set in Summer Starfruit, punched it out with the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and adhered it with some Multipurpose Glue before I adhered the epoxy dome to it. The whole piece is adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the simplicity of the card and you know I love some flags! I hope that you enjoyed my Create with Connie and Mary card for this week’s color challenge. Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have an awesome Friday!!
