Just Believe (CCMC164)

Where do the weeks go? It is time for yet another Create with Connie and Mary challenge! This week it’s a wonderfully interpretive sketch.

I decided to use some new products from the upcoming Holiday Mini to whet your appetite. I used the Spice Cake Suite of products which I LOVE!

The base for my card is More Mustard and I’ve layered with Soft Suede cardstock and a sheet of Spice Cake designer series paper.

My central layer is Very Vanilla which I sponged with Soft Suede and splattered with Spritzer tool and Early Espresso. I stamped two leaves in Pool Party and More Mustard from the stamp set Gently Falling. This is going to be a “must have”, I can tell you that! Over the leaves, I stamped a saying from Just Believe in Soft Suede.

For the vertical piece, I used a strip of Soft Suede cardstock. I then layered it with a piece of Pool Party ruffled grosgrain and then down the centre I added a small strip of More Mustard cardstock. This is tacked down with a couple of Trinkets.

To finish it all off, I stamped a leaf outline on some River Rock cardstock and cut it out tying a small piece of Linen Thread on for a little added detail.

This sketch was a lot of fun and I hope you’ll head on over to Create with Connie and Mary and play along!
