It is time for the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #499 and oh my, what a challenge it is or at least it was for me!
I am using the beautiful new stamp set, Blossoming Basket. This lovely stamp set is a bundled with the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Embossing folder and is one of the 3 items added to the Sale-A-Bration choices. This bundle is free with a $100 order during Sale-A-Bration.
Back to the challenge. This week it is a color challenge and looking at my card I am not sure you would be able to figure out what 3 colors were in the challenge.
I think Sweet Sugarplum looks great with the Pool Party and I think Pool Party looks good with Flirty Flamingo but I am still not sure if Flirty Flamingo looks good with Sweet Sugarplum. I totally took the easy way out and just used the Sweet Sugarplum and the Pool Party as little accents and focused on the Flirty Flamingo. The 3 large flowers are all colored with Flirty Flamingo ink refill and an Aqua Painter. I played with different amounts of water and ink to get 3 different shades.
Along the edge of the card I used one of the Petal Pair embossing folders. The Flirty Flamingo striped ribbon makes me think of springtime. The three little dots were made by cutting out the circles using one of the dies in the Mini Treat Bag thinlits. I attached the dots to the card and then carefully added Fine-Tip glue over the top of them to make them shine.
Be sure to head over to the Create with Connie and Mary blog and check out what the other members of the design team created. So many good ideas that I wish I had thought of!
