Secret Garden CCMC248

We have a colorful new challenge this week at Create With Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge:  it's COLOR!  Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit and Gumball Green are in the spotlight for us to use to create our cards.  Here's mine:

These three colors are all 2012-2014 In Colors; I paired them with a large amount of white to showcase them, using the Shimmery White cardstock (#101910) on this card for its richness and subtle sparkle!  If you haven't tried it, you should... it's also great for techniques that involve water!   The sentiment is from the Word Play set; love it!

The zig-zag strips of color were cut with the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die.  Lots of great designs available on that die!

The flower was stamped with my Midnight Muse firm foam inkpad  (I love that I can quickly add Clear Embossing Powder and heat emboss for added texture when using the firm foam pads!) then diecut it with the coordinating Secret Garden Framelit set.  A second flower was embossed then I cut the center out and used a Blender Pen and ink pad to add some soft color.  The center is one of the adornments from the Dahlia Assortment; I added some Dazzling Diamonds to it for some sparkle.

I used the "leftovers" from the diecuts on the inside bottom to embellish and carry the design throughout.  

Here again is the challenge: 

Come on over to Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and see the Challenge Team cards then make a card using these colors yourself!  Upload it to the website and either your blog or an online site where we can see what you've made!  Join the fun!

Thanks for visiting today!
