Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!!
It's time for another OCC Challenge and today Laurie has a Sketch for us. You can see the Sketch, all the Samples and *who* Laurie has invited as a Guest (I heart her!!!) right here.
I figured I make a card for the special occasion!!! I have bought the wonderful *A Happy Heart* Set and have not had much of a chance to use it....silly - huh!?!
So today is the day I inked it up....I used Riding Hood Red on the heart and Close to Cocoa on the sentiment. The card base is Very Vanilla. I also punched out some Pink Pirouette, Sahara Sand, Riding Hood Red Circles. The Designer Paper is from the *Candy Lane* Collection. As you can tell I raised some of the Circles and the main panel with Stampin Dimensionals.
The card was dressed up with some Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, the super cute Bouquet Buttons plus some piercing.
Here is my card for the IC167. What a fun choice it was this week - LOL!!! I choose this bra (Page 2) *Still in Bloom*. Okay - my card is not as flashy as the bra...LOL - I went for a softer look - he,he,he!!! But I thought it matches the *Valentine* theme perfectly *wink*!!!
My color inspiration not only came from the IC167, but also from the fabulous CCEE Stampers. Our special OCC Guest - Tosh - was hosting this Color Combo on their site...and I had to play as well!!!
I promised myself at the beginning of the year to try to use a lot of my *older* stuff when I create cards....When I saw the colors - Pink, White and Kraft for this Challenge I thought of some Long Notes I had bought a while back. Silly me.....by the time I looked closer to write up the the recipe I realized it's Sahara Sand instead of Kraft - YIKES. I blame it on my sleep deprivation LOL.....I hope the CCEE ladies will forgive me....?!? I do like how the card turned out though....it's such a soft combo!!!
Okay, so here is some info about this card. The gorgeous image and sentiment is from There She Goes *Roses & Chocolate* Set. I inked them in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Prisma and Copic Markers (Green Tea, Pink Rose, Ballet Pink & Putty). I trimmed the sentiment and raised it with Stampin Dimensionals.
The Designer Paper is from the *Candy Lane* Collection and I had to use my new Eyelet Border Punch as well. To top it off I added the Silver Brads.
Alright - I hope I/we put you in the stampin' mood with these Challenges and you play along??? If not - have a wonderful and romantic Valentine's Day?!?!
Thanks for stopping by!!! Hugs ~S~
