Colour Challenge using Stampin’ Up! Products #CCMC406 – Create with Connie & Mary

Yes it’s Thursday and it’s time for a Colour Challenge using Stampin’ Up! Products! This week the challenge over at Create with Connie & Mary (#CCMC406) is to use the colours Crumb Cake/Kraft, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate!


Wow – a difficult combination this time around! I instantly thought masculine card when I saw this combo, but then I stopped and thought about how I could do something a bit more feminine! I think I pulled it off – what do you think?

I thought butterflies work in any colour and decided to create a simple card using an old favourite that I haven’t used in a while! I am very happy to say this set is carrying over to the new catalogue!
