Lift Me Up Bundle and the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #440

Time for the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge! This week it is a lovely color challenge.  


The Lift Me Up stamp set and the coordinating Up and Away thinlits immediately came to mind as the bundle to use for this color challenge.

I used Real Red card stock, the Neutrals DSP paper stack and some Red Glimmer paper to complete the balloon.  I would love to take a ride in this hot air balloon.

The clouds were also cut using the Up & Away thinlits.  I did do a little cloud surgery on the cloud nearest the Black twine.  I took off a couple of "puffs" to make it fit better in the space I had.   The sentiment was embossed with Black embossing powder.  I wanted to make sure the sentiment would show up against the Kraft card stock.

Be sure to go to the Create with Connie and Mary blog to see what the other members of the design team created with this color combination.  You can also join in the challenge.  I look forward to seeing what you create!




Just perfect, Sharon.

Agsin, your elegant flair shows up! I marvel at how you can take an otherwise whimsical or cutsie image and make it elegant! I love this in red, black and white! It totally pops against the plain kraft background!!!

Thanks Jenny! I will admit I was a bit leery about the kraft background. I appreciate you stopping by.

Wonderful use of the Real Red Glimmer Paper! An "aha" moment when I saw it. Great job Sharon!
