Freshly Made 43, CCMC210 and CCMC-NC3


Whooee!  This card takes care of 3 challenges.  I don't do that very often.  You can find the sketch at Freshly Made.  The colors come from Create with Connie & Mary and the challenge at the subscriber only site is to use some of the new Sizzix items in the new catty.  I have to say this color combo was a bit of a challenge to me.  I tried to get some pool party in there but didn't like the way it looked so decided to just let my pool party ink do the trick.  I did highlight some of the stamped image with my blender brush and some island indigo ink.  I used the new fancy fan embossing folder and the finishing touches edgelits.  My stamped image comes from the World Treasures set.  I just love it!

Thanks for stopping by!
Carol

Carol this card is a home run--you knocked it out of the park. I really like the use of the Pool Party ink and it totally works with the card stock selections. The addition of the Big Shot texture and button is fabulous. I am so glad you joined both Create with Connie and Mary challenges this week. Smiles, Elizabeth

You did a great job with the color challenge - I wasn't sure about the colors at first either - but then I ended up making a whole stack of cards for my convention swaps and used this color combination! I'm so glad you played along with us at Create with Connie & Mary!
