Create with Connie and Mary 274 and JAI 188 2nd Entry





Hello Everyone,

There is another Colour Challenge this week over at Create with Connie and Mary

CCMC274


I love the colour combo and have decided to make a DL sized card (long and skinny).  I'm calling this card a Hex Grunge Butterfly card.  Stamp sets used are Gorgeous Grunge, Six Sided Sampler and Papillon Potpourri stamp set and co-ordinating punches.


Grunge is not normally my style, but I recently had the stamp set out for another challenge over at JAI.  Love the pretty Soft Sky colour over the Very Vanilla card.  I've also decided to enter this card into the Grunge Challenge this week at Just Add Ink as a 2nd entry.   Have a closer look.




So what do you think of today's card for both challenges this week, the Colour challenge and the Grunge challenge at JAI.   Please feel free to make a comment.  I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Have a great day.

  9. I love making long cards and am so sad that SU discontinued the open ended envelopes. Will need to try to make one with the new Board! Love the butterflies with the hexes...darling card! Thanks for playing along with the Thursday color challenge on Create with Connie and Mary!
