OCC Challenge *For You*, IC168 *For You*


Howdy everyone!!! Wow, this Saturday has come by fast.....!!!

It's another fun OCC round!!! This time Laurie has asked us to add a *TAG* to our card or project!!! All of the DT Samples and more info can be found on the OCC Blog.

I have seen so many gorgeous cards with the new *Fifth Avenue Floral* Set, that I had to use it on my card today!!!

I stamped the individual flower and the stem with Basic Black. Next I used a Blender Pen and colored it with Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi. The image was layered onto Pink Pirouette CS and dressed up with the DS Pink Pink Pirouette Ribbon using a Styled Silver Ribbon Slider. The DP is from the Wild Wasabi Prints Collection plus I added a punched Pink Pirouette Eyelet Border below. At last I added the small Silver Pearls (Michaels) in the center of the flower, the Silver Brads and of course the tag (self made) using the *All Holidays* sentiment.

************************************************

Here is a card I made for the IC168 - isn't it a fun store to shop???


Once I saw this pillow I knew I wanted to use the beautiful *Morning Soft* Set. I haven't used this one in a while and I'm glad I had a chance to ink it up again!!!!

I tried to add the *blue* color into my card, but I just did like it, hope that's okay???

I settled for these colors - Rose Red, Mellow Moss and Whisper White. I inked the image in Basic Black and colored it with a Blender Pen. The center flower was raised up and accessorized them with Rhinestones. The DP is from the *Rose Red* Patterns Designer Series. At the end I added the 1 1/4" Mellow Moss Grosgrain Ribbon and attached the tag with the *All Holidays* sentiment on the side. I'm glad I still had some tags left from the OCC Challenge!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!! Have a wonderful weekend!!! ~TFL~
