Happy March 1st, friends! You know what Thursday means...it's Create with Connie & Mary day! This week its a color inspiration. Check out these happy, spring-time colors:
I combined our colors with this beautiful sketch from the gals over at Card Patterns:
I really liked the layout and the unique border treatment in the sketch. So, here's what I did with it:
Just Believe was one of those sets I just HAD to have when it came out but it's been sorely neglected in my craft room. So, I dusted it off and colored it with Wild Wasabi and So Saffron Stampin' Write markers to create my focal image. I needed a thinking of you card for a friend and this one from Word Play is among my favorites. I overstamped it in Island Indigo to coordinate with the card base.
The Lace Ribbon Border punch made a lovely trim piece through which I wove a piece of So Saffron 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon and with a glue dot added a little knot and some Island Indigo Baker's Twine--love that stuff! And that's it, pretty simple really, especially when the sketch and colors are picked out for me!
