I'm here with this week's Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. This week we were given a sketch to inspire our creations...
I loved this sketch when I first saw it. Then when I started creating nothing was coming out the way I wanted so I tossed all the cut paper in my scrap bin grabbed a random stamp set and a few things off my shelves and started over and when I was finished I was back in LOVE with the sketch! :)
I choose one of the bold bright prints from Floral District Designer Series Paper. I loved the Daffodil Delight and Lucky Limeade with just a touch of Rich Razzleberry so I tried to keep that balance on the card. The greeting comes from one of the new Hostess Sets Wacky Wishes. I'm LOVING that set and I can already see I'll be using it a lot this year!
The bird of course comes from Betsy's Blossoms (can you tell I'm also loving that set?? I've used it a lot already) I wanted to add just a touch of something to the background so I did a roll across the bottom of the Daffodil Delight with Betsy's Blooms wheel.
Don't forget to visit the Create with Connie and Mary website to get more inspiration from the other designers! And be sure to check out the New Catalog 2012 Edition of CCMC - Early Bird sign ups are going on right now!
I hope you're inspired to play along with us this week! We love to see what you come up with!
