Yeah, it’s the weekend peeps! And the upcoming week is a 4 day week because of July 4th. Winston is not looking forward to that holiday at all. I need to get him a Thunder Shirt this weekend, my poor Winnie. I’m off to Manhattan and the Fire Island today. Busy but fun and that’s always a good way to start a weekend. What are you all up to?
Today’s post – Create with Connie and Mary 258 colors…
Before I get to my card today I want to thank the lovely ladies for choosing my card as one of their top three picks for last week’s sketch challenge! You can see my original post here and the Create with Connie and Mary post here. For today’s card I started off with a base of Whisper White Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of Daffodil Delight and across the bottom, a piece of Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper. I punched out a piece of Night of Navy with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and used the Small Heart Punch to punch out a negative of the heart. The greeting is from the Banner Greetings Host(ess) Stamp Set and is stamped in Melon Mambo. The “washi tape” is from the Tape It Stamp Set and is stamped in Night of Navy. Underneath that is a flower from the Secret Garden Stamp Set that is cut out with the Secret Garden Framelits. The butterfly is from the Best of Butterflies Stamp Set and is punched out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch. Some Basic Jewels Rhinestones give the card a little sparkle. Thanks for visiting me today to see my Create with Connie and Mary color challenge card for this week. Have a great Saturday!
