Three Cheers! CCMC368

Hello and happy Thursday!  We have another fun challenge today from Create with Connie and Mary:  bold colors!!  This week we use Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango and Cucumber Crush for our challenge card.  It really took me awhile to think how to use these together; I discarded several ideas before deciding on this design using the new Greetings Thinlits.

I'm really liking this new set of Framelits with their scripty words:  hello, thanks, cheers.  Can't you just think of so many ways to use them?!  I diecut one "cheers" from each of the three challenge colors and layered them onto a Whisper White background dry embossed with the Lucky Stars embossing folder.

Next I made a banner of the Cucumber Crush print, treating the end with the Scalloped Tag Punch and adding underlays of Tangerine and Pacific.  Next came the stars:  I punched out the Tangerine star with the new Medium Star punch and added a diecut star of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper which was on my desk, an extra from a previous project.  The Rhinestone was colored with a Sharpie pen.   


The card base is Pacific Point with a layer of the Cucumber Print added.  The embossed white layer was added with Dimensionals.  Two more Glimmer Paper stars finish the card, except for the inside where I added a strip of Cucumber print and another glimmer star. 

Isn't this a fun color scheme from Create with Connie and Mary this week?
Now it's your turn to create!  Check out the cards of the other Challenge Team over on the Create with Connie and Mary blog and see their creative ideas, then join us in this challenge!!  These bright colors are perfect for a summertime project!

Thanks for visiting!  Happy Thursday!
