Good morning! I'm happy to say that the newest Where Creativity Meets C9 is officially live. :)
This month the theme for Challenge #14 is "Shades of Concord and 9th", which you know happens to be the same colors in our challenge logo. I love this color combination because it works for any occasion. I decided to make a card for my most needed and favorite occasion - thank you.
Concord & 9th's Many Mandalas set is just so beautiful, and I knew that it would be perfect for trying to mimic the color scheme with just a bit of dark blue and then lots of fading shades of teal. I really wanted the focal point to stand out, so I stamped just that image in the graduated darkest shades and did all the rest of the mandalas in the lightest aqua color. Then, I used the largest die in the Many Mandalas Die Set to cut out the image from vellum and placed it on top to frame the focal point. The sentiment (also from Many Mandalas) was embossed in black.
I'm looking forward to seeing how you use the Shades of Concord and 9th! Head HERE for all the challenge details (including how to enter to win a $25 gift certificate to Concord and 9th!) as well as to see all the wonderfully creative ways my teammates have used this color scheme. And then, make sure you go HERE to check out Concord and 9th's brand new release today! Oh my you guys. There is SO MUCH to LOVE!! I want it all. :) Hope this week brings lots of hope and happy moments!
