I'm here with this week's Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. This time we had a color challenge...
The Colors for this Challenge are Pool Party, Poppy Parade, and Basic Black. I used a bit of old and a bit of new in this card. Poppy Parade is one of the five In Colors that will be retiring at the end of this month. The Carry On Stamp Set is a sneak peek from the new catalog. It's one of the Hostess sets that will be avaliable starting June 1st!
It's so fun getting a peek at stamp sets early as a Demonstrator! When I saw the Carry On set it went straight to the must have list! It's filled with other fun carry on phrases like Eat a Cupcake or Shop On. I can see a lot of fun cards and small decor items made with this set!
There is some fun history behind the Keep Calm and Carry On posters! If you're not familar with where the greeting came from take a minute and read about it here.
A Decorative trim, some ribbon and a button finished the card off.
