Hello fine friends! It is color challenge time this week at Create with Connie and Mary! This is such a pretty color combo! Here is what I came up with:


My DSP background is from the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack. I love love love all the designs of this DSP! I ran my top strip of card stock through the Big Shot using the Honeycomb embossing folder. I like how it mimics the honeycomb pattern of the paper. My sentiment is from Perfect Pennants and I used the ever so useful Handheld Stapler to attach a strip of Pool Party.

Seriously, I love that thing! It is powerful enough to staple through some pretty thick stuff and gentle enough for the more fragile. Anywho, thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll pop on over to see the other designer’s cards at Create with Connie and Mary. They will provide you with great ideas and EYE CANDY! 😉 It’s sure to get your creative groove going so come along and play with us!

  1. I love how you used the hexagon embossing on the watermelon cardstock to reflect the background paper; keeping with the black/white/watermelon scheme with the Pool Party accent really makes the design pop.

  2. I really like how you broke up the background paper with the hexagon textured panel and sentiment. Paper bow…genius! Great simple card!

  3. I love that background paper – nice touch of co-ordinating pattern and texture from the embossed strip and the Pool Party stapled ribbon is just the right amount to really get noticed – super cute!
