CCMC#414 - Color Challenge

Hello and welcome back! Today's card is for the color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary.

I was a little surprised to see Tangelo Twist as one of the colors, since it was retired at the end of May, but I still have some cardstock in my stash, so I was able to pull it out to use for this challenge.

Here is my card:

I used the Tangelo Twist for the card base and added the Peekaboo Peach as the sunburst. The sunburst is stamped with Peekaboo Peach as well. The Cucumber Crush is added with the sentiment and the punched circle underneath. I used some Whisper White bakers twine and wove it around the center of the sunburst, then added a few rhinestones for some bling. This card is my July birthday card for Shannon West's #imbringingbirthdaysback movement. She posted this week on Facebook that she has already mailed out 1,000 cards so far this year and is now pushing for 2,000! My list isn't nearly that long (thank goodness!).

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

  2. Fabulous idea to use these colors for a sunburst, and I really love the twine detail! Fun card! Thank you for joining us at Create with Connie and Mary!

  3. Ha! The wrong badge was was supposed to be Tangerine Tango! But either works! Love the two shades of peach for your sunburst card and how you did the twine around the center greeting! That really showcases it! Thanks for playing along with the color challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary!

  4. Gorgeous sunny colours for a sunny card - I love the twine detail around your central sentiment too. Thanks for joining us over at Create With Connie and Mary this week!
