Time for the Create with Connie & Mary Thursday Challenge! This week it is a sketch challenge #CCMC596.
You know I love a sketch with 3 things in a row. It is a design I turn to a lot. The hardest thing for me was to decide what stamp set, dies, I wanted to feature.
Bonanza Buddies! The card I made is very similar to the sample in the Mini Catalog. Instead of just the koala bear I used all of the animals. The animals were cut out from the Birthday Bonanza DSP. It is a fun option to be able to do that. I added the balloons (from the Special Someone set and cut them out using the soon to be released-February 4th-Special Day dies) instead of the banners. I also added some So Saffron Metallic Baker's twine which is a Sale-A-Bration choice.
The balloons were stamped and then filled in using the Shimmery Crystal Effects. The Shimmery Crystal Effects debuted in the 2019 Holiday Catalog and is a Carryover Item. The Shimmer is subtle and a very cool effect mixed in with the Crystal Effects.
Thank you for stopping by. Be sure to check out what the other members of the design team created with the sketch.
