It is Thursday and time for a new Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. This week it is a color challenge.
Azure Afternoon is a new addition the Stampin' Up! Color Collection. It is a such a happy, bright blue. The color reminds me of bluebirds which led me to the Sweet Songbirds stamp set and the coordinating Songbird Builder punch.
Isn't she so sweet? I love her Lemon Lime Twist gingham wings and beak. The Early Espresso branch and the Lemon Lime Twist leaves were stamped using the Sweet Songbird set. The Flirty Flamingo flowers were stamped in Flirty Flamingo ink using the Sweet Citrus stamp set and die cut using the coordinating Sweet Citrus Hybrid Embossing folder and dies. The Azure Afternoon flower centers were cut using the Dots & Spots die. The clouds were punched using the Cloud punch. Around the edges of the clouds I added a little Azure Afternoon ink to give the clouds more definition. The gingham grass was cut using the Basic Borders die. The sentiment is from the Circle Sayings stamp set and was stamped on a Nested Essential label.
I had a few left over flowers so I attached them to the inside of the card.
Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created.
