Create with Connie and Mary 234

Posted on

Morning all! Ahh… Saturday how I love thee! I’m off to the city this morning to visit my friend Kim. We are going to the movies later to see the Life of Pi and after that maybe we’ll get some Korean food, yum! What are you all up to today? It’s supposed to be in the 50’s here and tomorrow we are supposed to get up to the 60’s! Now that’s more like it! I’m sure that it will be short lived but appreciated none the less.

Today’s post is for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. For this week’s challenge they have given us a color challenge…

CCMC 234

A very different color combinations for me. I do love Midnight Muse and I wanted to do something a little different. The base of the card is Whisper White Card Stock and I stamped the leaves from the Madison Avenue Stamp Set** in Midnight Muse down the right side of the base. The background and the Pink Pirouette rounded squares are both embossed with the Vine Street Textured Impressions Embossing Folder**. The larger rounded squares under the Pink Pirouette ones are Midnight Muse. I rounded the corners with the 1/2″ Circle Punch and the Pink ones are rounded with the 3/16″ Corner Rounder. The “petals are adhered to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the greeting I used the Bloomin’ Marvelous Stamp Set stamped in Midnight Muse and rounded all of the corners of it with the 3/16” Corner Rounder. I really like the retro modern feel of the card and I enjoyed the colors together more than I thought I would. I hope you like my Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge card for this week. Thank you for visiting me today and don’t forget to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players Color Challenge from Anne Marie. Have a adventurous day! πŸ™‚

    I agree with Debbie! Neat idea for two ways for background.

  3. Your retro card looks great Justin. Love how you used the colours and what a fun background with that strip down the side! Enjoy your time in Manhattan – whoops maybe you are home again by this! Interesting when you say the temperatures have reached in the fifties over there – here in parts, they are reaching the fifties too but in Centigrade!!

    • Thanks Jean! I’m still in the city. Just got some Korean food. It was overcast here but not too cold. Yes, I have seen that you guys are roasting over there! Stay cool!

  9. First saw this on Pinterest and love the colourway, and most of all the clever use of making the background a focal point in the design.
    Many thanks for sharing and helping to set our minds working on other directions to use our craft stash.
