Good Morning, Stampers!

Well, we are wrapping up the 2nd week of Create with Connie and Mary with a fabulous Saturday Color Challenge!

I create a fun shaped card for the challenge today. I started with a piece of More Mustard measuring 4 1/4" x 6" and folded it in half. The I ran it thru my Big Shot with the Lacy Brocade embossing folder. On another piece of More Mustard, I cut out a Window framelit and paper pierced it using the coordinating Festive Paper Piercing Pack. Then, I cut a smaller piece of Early Espresso cardstock and repeated the above steps. I adhered them together and added them to the front of the card. On a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso ink, cut it with the window framelit and colored it using Raspberry Ripple and Lucky Limeade markers. To complete the card, I wrapped a piece of 7/8" Cotton Ribbon and wrapped it around the card in a large bow.
