Occasions Mini Saturday Challenge OCC1

Good Morning, Stampers!

Welcome to the first week of the Saturday Challenge for the Create with Connie and Mary 2013 Spring Occasions Edition! To start things off, we have a fun and attractive color combination for you today!

What do you think of this new EXCLUSIVE Hostess Set from page 39 called Million Dollar Moments? Isn't it adorable?! The images and sentiments included in this set speak from the heart.

1. To begin, I embossed and sanded the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder on the new Pool Party Core'dinations Cardstock.
2. Secondly, I punched a 1 3/8" circle from the Primrose Petals DSP and adhered it to a Tea Lace doily. I then adhered the doily along the left side of the card and trimmed.
3. I stamped the girl image with a Basic Black and Real Red marker and stamped it onto Whisper White cardstock. I cut it out with the Label framelit.
4. To add the "raining flowers", I colored the stamp with Pool Party, Primrose Petals and Real Red markers. The sentiment in Basic Black ink.
5. Layer the stamped image with a Basic Black Label Framelit and adhere it to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
6. Finally, I added several little Itty Bitty Flowers in the challenge colors and added a little rhinestone to the center of each. They are adhered to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
7. For the finishing touch, I added Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details to the rain boots for an added "pop" of shimmer and glam!

This is the nicest card I've seen made with this set - and I LOVE the red boots!

I never would have thought that Pool Party goes with the Red... but it looks great!
