It is Thursday and time for a new Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. This week it is a color challenge.
I love this color combination. It is a little bittersweet since Mango Melody is a color that is retiring. Like so many things I wonder why I didn't use it more?
Every time I use the All That dies I think, I need to use that cool argyle die and well, I finally did! I made a simple background using the argyle die in Flirty Flamingo and Mango Melody . These colors look like spring so I also added the daisies made from the Medium Daisy punch. The Medium Daisy punch will be retiring soon and is currently available and at a reduced price. I like a full flower so I used 2 daisies stacked for each flower. The daisies needed a center and I usually use a small retired circle punch but I couldn't find it so instead I used the stitched hearts. The hearts are from the Give It A Whirl dies and they are perfect! The Give It A Whirl dies have a lot of different shapes in them and I look at the die set often for shapes like hearts, stars, clouds, circles, and rectangles. The leaves are punched using the Country Bouquet punch (part of the Country Bouquet bundle). The simple sentiment is from the Artistically Inked stamp set.
I had a few extra argyle cut outs so I added them to the inside of the card along with another daisy. I am thinking I will be making more of these cards in this color combination to send some spring vibes.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created for this challenge.
