BIG DAY Birthday!

Yippee!  I got to use my new Sale-A-Bration set Big Day for my Create with Connie and Mary Challenge today!  We always like new toys and I especially like this set but even better, it was FREE!!  This super sketch today is just perfect for this set!



The image is colored with Blendabilities and the "flags" are cut from other prints in the same designer paper pack as the background.  I topped them with a punched circle of Gold Glimmer Paper then a gold button tied with Baker's Twine. 



Stamps:  Big Day
Inks:  Tuxedo Black Memento Ink; Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral Blendabilities
Paper:  Best Year Ever DSP (SAB - Free); Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, Whisper White, Basic Black, Gold Glimmer Paper
Accessories:  Paper Trimmer, Gold Basic Metal Button, Circles TIEF, Big Shot, Coastal Cabana Baker's Twine, Circle Punch.

Here's fun sketch from Create with Connie and Mary for this week:



I hope you will join in the fun this week at Create with Connie and Mary!  Just make a card using this sketch then upload it to the CWCM blog... all the guidelines are on their blog!  I love challenges and especially sketches because they give such a good starting point for creating!

While you are at the CWCM blog, look at the other wonderful creations of the other Challenge Team members!  You'll always find creative and inspiring work from these talented ladies!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a warm and safe day!
