IC141 Serene Spring and OCC Challenge Card

Happy Saturday everyone!!!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far and have time to stamp???

Our little *Luke* is getting us up very early these days and since I was up I thought I'd play along with the IC141 - Athleta Swimwear!!! Gorgeous samples and I have chosen this beauty. The *Melon* color totally reminded me of the new gorgeous *Urban Garden* DP from SU......!!!

I have added the DP on the bottom of the card and added some 5/8" White Ribbon on the edge. Next I was dyeing the white flower with the matching color *Baja Breeze*. I have used the Heating Tool to fasten the process....once it was dry I have added a smaller white flower and added the Halfback Pearl to it.

At last I have inked the sentiment from the *Serene Spring* Set in *Baja Breeze* as well and pierced right below it.

Hope you like it??? Maybe you get inspired and play along???



Here is a card I have made for today's OCC Sketch Challenge.

I also combined this card with the MTV06 Challenge from Verse Visual.
Charmaine is asking us to make a *Black and White* card with a *Splash*!!!

My *Splash* color is *Tangerine Tango* - my favorite out of the new In Color!!!

I have used the *Stitched* BG Stamp for the center and the sentiment is from the new *Heard from the Heart*.

The Black Satin Ribbon is from Michales, the flowers are from Walmart!!!

BTW - if you have not checked out my card below...you must hear the great news!!!

My friend Jessica Knutsen is starting a new Stamp Company - WAAHHOOO - she is so talented and I hope you will find the time to swing by her blog to check out her gorgeous designed Set's!!!

Be kind to her and let her know if you like the Set's!!!

Have a great weekend!!! ~TFL~
