Marquee Messages


When I saw this week’s sketch, my mind went right to the new set “Marquee Messages”.  It’s a great set for all ages, either sex, and many occasions.  I have used it for several cards with colorblocked pieces, but I wanted to try something different this week.  I heat embossed it in white on black cardstock.


Don’t you love the retro look of the sign?  My original plan was to put this image on one of the new Pop of Pink designer papers.  One side of each of the Pop of Pink papers is black and white; I am using one of them as a backdrop in this picture.  However, the bold diagonal stripe from the neutrals designer paper stack seemed more suitable.

I broke up all of the black and white with a little Crushed Curry and Cucumber Crush.  Our thick twine is now available in a few great new colors – Cucumber Crush, Melon Mambo, and Whisper White.

Thank you for checking out my challenge card.  Please visit Create with Connie and Mary to see all of the cards created by my talented teammates as well as the entries as they come in.  Hope you’ll be inspired to play along!
