A few days ago this post was published, well actually it was blank....ooops! Definitely a case of operator error. Sorry that happened. Here is the card I made for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #CCMC560.
Here is the sketch the card is based on.
I used the soon to be retiring Bloom by Bloom stamp set and stamped that fun, whimsical bloom. I inked the flower in Grapefruit Grove ink and stamped some Calypso Coral ink over it to create the ombre effect.
I also used the coordinating Happiness Blooms DSP for the strips. This pack of paper is full of bright and bold designs and colors. It too along with the Night of Navy Baker's twine will be retiring soon. The Grapefruit Grove card stock was embossed using the Subtle 3-D folder. I think this is the embossing folder I reach for the most.
Sorry about the fake post earlier this week. Hope you will join in the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #560 and be sure to check out what the other members of the design team created for this challenge!
