I love playing along with challenges. They really get my creative juices flowing. Sometimes a color challenge puts together colors I never would have dreamed of using. Sketch challenges help me with my graphic design.
Again this week, I'm playing along with Create with Connie & Mary in their weekly color challenge (CCMC 290). This week's combination was a real challenge for me. I'm not sure I nailed it, but I met the requirements.
I used the Thinlits Circle Card Die to create the card. I used the Quatrefancy Specialty Series Paper and the coordinating Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder. It took me a while to find the right combination of circles--I had to use my 2.5" circle punch and one of the circles from the Circles Framelits, but I was pleased with the close layered look. I used the Decorative Label Punch to back one of the label elements included with the Circle Card Framelit Die set. Here's the outside of the card:
And here's the inside. The entire "Happy Birthday" sentiment was just a little bit too big for either of the inside panels, so I had to fold it in the middle so it would fit across two panels. I used several of the chevron elements from the Circle Card Framelit Die set and added some bling to the Apothecary Accents Framelit.
