CCMC218 Happy Thoughts

Hi friends and welcome back for another Thursday challenge Create With Connie and Mary. Today we have a color challenge for you. They're the perfect colors for making an autumn project or Halloween project with the rich and vibrant colors.

I went along with a clean and simple autumn project that has my usual texture and dimension. It's difficult to tell in the background but on my Whisper White card stock, I used the Perfect Details Texturz Plate. It's exactly what the card needed to take away the stark white look and add some subtle texture while keeping my focal point. My edgelit was cut with Rich Razzleberry textured card stock which also lends itself to additional subtle texture. I stamped the script from the French Foliage stamp set down the right of the image panel using Sahara Sand which seems to be a go-to color for me when it comes to ink distressing or adding, again, something subtle. Sahara Sand compliments our entire color palette. I added a few rhinestones to brighten up the card just a tad and did some 2-step stamping. My image panel was adhered to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

We would love to have you play along with us today and be sure to check out what the rest of the design team made for you. Thank you so much for stopping by to visit me and God bless you. Have a great day.

  1. Never would have thought to combine these colors with the Field Flower! Just beautiful for Autumn!

  2. I just read your post on and thought I would share this verse with you:
    Call to Me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things which you do not know.  Jeremiah 33:3.
    Praying for your speedy recovery and that God will show you his purpose as you go through this trial.

  3. Oh…pretty!  Love all the white space, it really makes your flower and colors POP off the page!  Great job with the Create with Connie and Mary color challenge!

  4. Wow! This is stunning! Love the stamped script down the side and the a little bling on the other! But all that doesn't take away from the gorgeous flower! 

  5. Wow. This card is gorgeous.
    The elements are all positioned in just the right spots. I also like your use of "white space".
