OCC Color Challenge


Happy Saturday!!!

When you read this post the fabulous Denise Marzec and I are in Florida attending the SU Orlando Regional Seminar!!! I hope we'll get to meet some of you awesome Stamper's there too?!? Denise and I have been looking forward finally meeting each other!!! We'll have some photo's to share when we get back!!!

For today's OCC Challenge Jennifer Meyer has come up with a *Color Challenge* - we have to use any two shades of blue!!! Click here to see the Challenge - plus find out who our *Guest* is and Jennifer is also having a *Giveaway* for you all!!!

My card started out with a Whisper White card base and I added the fab *Pacific Point Patterns DP* combined with Bashful Blue and Pacific Point CS!!! I'm must admit I'm not big into *blue* colors, but since I created this combo - I really love it!!! Here are two more cards I made with this color combo!!!

I used the *Close As a Memory* Set from SU and inked it with Bashful Blue and Pacific Point. The sentiment is from the *Beautiful Borders* Set and was also inked in Pacific Point. At the end I dressed the card up with some Silver Pearls.

Hope you'll play along??? Here is a link to all the OCC ladies:

Have a great weekend!!! ~TFL~
