CWCM Color Challenge Card

Thought I'd do a quick share of a card I created for the Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge this week. The colors were Pool Party, Basic Black, and Poppy Parade.


This is what I came up with:


Tea for You
Cardstock: 11-13 In Color Pattern Pack, Basic Black and Whisper White CS
Ink: Basic Black, Poppy Parade Marker
Stamps: The Tea Shoppe
Other: Lace Border Punch (retiring!)

I want to note the tea cups were crooked on purpose. However, I noticed a lot of the other layers look off after I put it together :/ I think my paper cutter is off center and threw everything off slightly. I am trying to find a really really good paper cutter so hopefully I will be cutting better soon!

Have a great week and enjoy!

I just LOVE those teacups and they are so cute in those color and 'crooked' like that! I don't like mine lined up at all! Thanks for playing along this week with the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

Great way to offset your teacups. Your paper looks fine in your photo and by the way...Stampin' Up! has an awesome paper cutter! So glad you joined CCMC this week!

I really like the punched strip of black on the edge of the card...looks like old lace to go along with the teacups. Thanks for playing the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge this week!
