Watercolor Wonder CCMC289

Thursday means it's time for another fun challenge from Create with Connie and Mary!  Today we have a wonderful sketch for our challenge!  The original is a square card, which is what I did, but it can be used on cards of other shapes too!

I love the colors in the Watercolor Wonders Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Catalog and like how the coordinating patterns work together so beautifully.  These papers make me think of spring, which is a good thing since we are getting hit by winter storm after storm here... they are just lining up all across the country to hit us, it seems!  Hope you are safe and warm where you are!

Card dimensions:
The Whisper White card base is 10" x 5" folded in half.
Chevron DSP is 4-3/4" square.
Island Indigo layer is 3" square.  Indigo banner is 15/16" x 2-1/4".
Floral DSP is 2-7/8" square.
Gumball Green banner is 1" x 1-3/4".

Stamps:  Petite Petals, You're Lovely (SAB)
Ink:  Island Indigo
Paper:  Watercolor Wonder DSP; Whisper White, Island Indigo and Gumball Green cardstock.
Accessories:  Petite Petals Punch, Paper Trimmer, Basic Metal Buttons, White Bakers Twine, Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon

Here is the sketch from Create with Connie and Mary this week: 

It is pretty simple and offers so many possibilities!  How about you?  Are you game to jump in and make a card using this cool sketch?  See the guidelines at Create with Connie and Mary's blog and also see the beautiful artwork of the other Challenge Team members while you're there!

WOW! Another beautiful card, Margaret! I love the color combination and I really like how you used the DSP as a focal point. Very creative! I was not going to purchase this paper, but you made me change my mind after seeing your card!
Thanks for always inspiring me! X

WOW! I really love the subtleness of the sentiment. It doesn't take too much away from the pattern DSP - beautiful!
