CCMC407Happy Thursday everyone!  Oh…I have NEW STUFF!!!  I LOVE NEW STUFF!!!  And since it is time for a Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge…this week a FUN sketch challenge…I decided to pull out my new stuff and have some FUN!

Now…I’m not a big ‘flamingo’ person, but when I say this set I just KNEW I’d have fun playing with it.  And I have to say…it really is a fun set!  I paired it with the new dsp Pop of Pink.

  • Melon Mambo – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 1/4
  • Heart/black print – 3 1/4 x 2 1/4 then cut into 3 strips – 1″, 3/4″, 1/2″, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp greeting using Melon Mambo and Basic Black.
  • Gold Foil – 1/2 x 4 1/4 – cut 2, add behind Whisper White paneld then add to card front

  1. Love love love it Mary!!!!! Your card is really vibrant! I love this new set. I didn’t think I would be a huge fan of the flamingo but he’s my favourite now!

  2. This is such a FUN card! The colors – love the pink and black, of course! The gold leaves look great behind the flamingo! Great card!

  3. So this set didn’t speak to me at first glance, but the many samples are totally swaying me, including this rather flirty number Mary! Love the paper choice too.

  4. Your fussy cutting around the leaves and flamingo leaving that ‘fuzz’ of white makes the images “pop” even more with the given color choices! Such a fun and bold statement your card makes! Wonderful use of this fabulous new set!
