Best Thoughts CCMC370

We have another fun challenge for you today from Create with Connie and Mary... a pretty COLOR Challenge!  We're using one of our new In Colors that is so popular:  Watermelon Wonder, as well as another long-time favorite Pool Party, plus Basic Black.
Isn't this new Hostess set, Best Thoughts, gorgeous?!  I have been eager to use mine and thought these colors would  really work well with it.  I stamped the large flower on Whisper White cardstock with Watermelon ink then using my Blender Pen and ink I added more color to the petals, then fussy-cut it.  The butterfly from the set was stamped with Pool Party ink onto Pool Party cardstock and again added more color with the ink pad and Blender Pen then fussy-cut it as well.

Next the same flower was stamped in Black on the ledger print in the Typeset DSP pack and the stem lightly touched with Pool Party (again the Blender Pen).  The cut-out flower was layered over the ledger flower with Dimensionals.

The sentiment is grounded with a banner that was originally black and white designer paper; I colored the dots with a Blender Pen and Pool Party ink to tie in with the color scheme and added a Watermelon Blossom Accent centered with a Pearl.

Stamps:  Best Thoughts, Something to Say (sentiment)
Inks:  Watermelon Wonder, Pool Party, Memento Black
Paper:  Typeset and Go Wild Designer Paper packs; Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White, Basic Black and Pool Party cardstocks.
Accessories:  Word Window Punch, 2015-17 In Color Blossom Accents, Paper Snips, Dimensionals, Basic Pearls.

This is the Color Challenge from Create with Connie and Mary we used this week... so pretty!
I love the variety and gorgeous-ness (a word?) of the Challenge Team's creations this week!  See them at!  While there check out the guidelines for the challenge because we would love for you to play/create with us this week using this cool color combination!!  I look forward to seeing what you create!

That took a lot of patience to color in that flower and you did it beautifully with lots of light and dark. Love the polka dots with the ledger paper too. Really lovely card, Margaret!

What a great idea to color the DSP! I love how that gorgeous flower appears to be coming right off the card.

What a beautifully coloured flower and butterfly Margaret and the notepad background paper makes for an interesting finished look that is quite unusual. Love the subtle colouring on the dots on the DSP banner too - the perfect finishing touch.
