IC145, OCC Sketch Challenge



Happy Saturday!!!

Before my day is getting all crazy - I thought I'd check out the IC145 and what the talented ladies from the OCC have cooked up this morning...and to my surprise it was a fabulous Color and Sketch Challenge - couldn't resist to play along!!! Thank goodness I got up early....

I was definitely inspired by the IC picture - what a beautiful living room and the colors are gorgeous!!!

For my card I used Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White and the new *Haiku* DP.

I followed Amy's fab Sketch and did a little *Faux Stitching* around the border. For the main image I used the new Hostess Level I *Organic Grace* Set and for the sentiment I used *Serene Spring*.

To glamorize my card a bit I've added a new *Flower* Brad from SU (pg.184). All the panels were raised with Stampin Dimensionals.

Hope you like it??? ~TFL~
