It’s a new challenge at Create with Connie & Mary.  And for this week I made a celebration card!

This week we are working with a color Challenge –

This was a quick card that just kind of popped out of nowhere.
I think I still have the single stamps on my mind.  I used another one this week – the Celebrate image from the Seasonal Sayings set in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog.  From there I started adding layers.  Then I thought it needed a spritz of color – so I took out the color spritzer tool and added some spritz.  Which then made me think it kind of look like it could be fireworks.  So I think this would be really cute as a red, white and blue card but since it isn’t the colors that I was working with this is maybe a birthday celebration card or for some milestone or accomplishment.

I added the stamped/punched stars and then got the bright idea to add the frayed ribbon to make it look like shooting stars!  So lets celebrate and go create!
