OCC Challenge, IC171 Thanks so much...


Happy Saturday everyone!!!

Today's OCC Challenge is brought to you by Kim again. She has cooked up a fun one - a Limited Supply Challenge!!!

The limitations on your card/project are - maximum of 3 layers, 1 main image and only 1 type of embellishment!!! For all the Samples and more info please visit the OCC Blog!!!

If this image doesn't look familiar to you, well it is a new one called *Soft Summer*. This new Set will be featured in the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog (available April 01st)!!!

I had the pleasure of playing with this Set when I went to the Orlando Regional Seminar back in January!!! Here is the card we made at the Seminar with the other image that comes in this Set!!!

For this card I used the colors - White, Tangerine Tango and Garden Green. My choice of embellishment are the Silver Pearls (Michael's). I inked the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and I colored it with Copic Markers - R08 and G07. The sentiment is also inked in Black.

For close ups and more inspiration visit the OCC ladies on their blog - Cindy, Jennifer, Lori, Kim, Vicki, Frances, Robin, Loretta and Jenny.

Quick note - I finally signed up for my 24/7 Stampin Up shopping site!!! If you don't have a demonstrator yet and you would like to be updated on current SU *Specials* contact me under silkeledlow@yahoo.com - also feel free to shop with me 24/7 - I appreciate your business!!!

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

This is my submission for the IC171 - Fitz and Floyd. WOW - what a store - so many fun ideas and it's a great shopping site too!!!


I was inspired by this Bellacara Pitcher - I really liked the colors!!! I used the new Set *Nature of Friendship* from There She Goes. I borrowed the fab SYFTT Sketch from Jen del Muro again. Here is the other card I made with this Sketch.

The colors on this card are - White, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Rose Red and Close To Cocoa and Chocolate Chip. I added some brown Gemstones (Michael's) on the little flowers and I created the Build-A-Brad with the round image from the TSG Set.

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

Your cards are beautiful Silke! The OCC one is so elegant. You do limited supply very well!
I also scrolled down and looked at your 'puppy'. We have one of those too. lol Jazmin just turned 1 in December, but she looks tiny compared to Luke! She is a dainty girl. lol Jazz is so wild and doesn't realize how big she is. Yet...when a toddler is around, she suddenly becomes soooooooo gentle. Amazes me every time. Love those boxers...I just told dh I wish they came in toy size. lol!!
