CCMC Mixes it Up!

Hi Friends! I made another challenge card, this time using the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. Because these gals are at the Stampin' Up! convention ( a lot of demos are!), they are hosting the challenge for 2 weeks. They have a sketch and a color combo...and we could use one or both parts. Well, I kept it simple, and just chose the colors.




My card base is basic gray. That cool rick-rack is from a retired ribbon originals package. Gotta use up my stash! I have this baggie with lots of circles and ovals cut out with the big shot and my sizzix dies...and I chose 2 circles and an oval. I sponged them with so saffron first, then pumpkin pie. I stamped Pocket Silouettes in basic gray. The sentiment is from On Your Birthday. My last touch was using my basic gray marker to draw in some birds.

Easy-peasy! Oh wait...in the card making world, we call this Clean and Simple! I'll be sending this one to my brother-in-law. Glad I got that done!
