Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a nice weekend. It was in the 80’s here today and I took a ride in the convertible and Winston went to the groomers and I spent a lot of time crafting today! For me, it was a great day! Today’s card is for this weeks Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. This week we have a sketch challenge…
I wanted to use some cool tones so I went with Midnight Muse* and the Basic Grey from the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper. The base of the card is Midnight Muse Card Stock* and the background is Twitterpated DSP. I used the Paper Doily Large Sizzlits Die to cut out a piece of Whisper White Card Stock. With a little work and some help from your Paper Piercer the end result is a really nice paper doily. I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch on a sliver of Basic Grey for the bottom. The greeting is from the Keep Calm Stamp Set** and is stamped in Midnight Muse*. I used the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies** to cut out the “and” and popped it up on a Stampin’ Dimensional which I also used to adhere the greeting to the card. The pocketbook is from the same set and I mounted it to a 1″ circle with another Stampin’ Dimensional. I love the simplicity of the card and the colors. I’m also loving the Keep Calm** set and can’t wait to order some more new items from the Catalog on Thursday! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great Sunday!

I didn’t care for the Twitterpated DSP when it first came out and now it seems to be growing on me! It looks wonderful with Midnight Muse and I like the sentiment and how you layered the word “and”. So glad you could join us this week at Create with Connie & Mary!
Thank you Debbie! I didn’t use Twitterpated much win I first got it, I do like it now too. I love the Carry On Stamp Set and Midnight Muse is my favorite color! 🙂
Great card!!! The Midnight Muse looks fantastic with Basic Gray!! Love how you highlighted the word ‘and’ and how you added the punched circle behind the purse! Very clever!! Thanks for playing the challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!
