Make a Wish!

Hi crafty friends!

I’ve been placed in a time warp and it is Thursday already! Where is the summer going?! Just can’t believe how time is slipping by… But alas, enough whining. It’s time to discuss this week’s sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! This was a fun one for me. I haven’t used my oval framelits in awhile so it was fun to get them out and play a bit.

I used Coral Calypso and Basic Black for my go to colors. My flower is Hello Honey which I thought added just the right amount of contrast. I left everything pretty simple because my background DSP is so busy. Working with these colors had me thinking of Halloween! It will be here before you know it! Especially since I’m in this time warp continuum where my time is going just shy of the speed of light!

I gave my sentiment some height by using dimensionals and attached my flower with a glue dot. And that’s all folks! Hope you’ll hop on over to Create with Connie and Mary and view the other designer’s cards and play along! 🙂

Hello Friends,

It’s time for another challenge at Create with Connie and Mary.  This week it is a color challenge.  At first I thought I may struggle with it but as it came along I realized that I really like it!  This challenge was a good reminder for me to get out of my comfort zone and try new things.

I even got out the Crystal Effects to play with because it had been awhile since I used it. The Lovely Lace embossing folder gives it detail without being too “fussy”.  The sentiment is from the “Hello There” hostess set.

In this picture you can better see where I put the Crystal Effects over the sentiment. I stamped it using the Tuxedo Black Momento ink and had no problems with it smearing.  Lastly, I topped it off with a sweet Wild Wasabi Candy Dot. 🙂
