OCC Challenge - Use your favorite...., IC177, WT215 Beautiful Things

Happy Saturday everyone!!! I had so much fun seeing all of your *recycled* cards this past week!!! You guys are soooo super creative - thank you for playing along :)!!!

This will be my last week hosting the OCC Challenge, but don't you worry there are more awesome Challenges already lined up for May!!!

For this week I'm challenging you to use *YOUR* favorite Color Combo!!! My favorite Combo is Black, Red and White!!! Can't go wrong with them - LOL!!! For all the Samples and more info on how to play along please stop by the OCC Blog!!!

My Guest Designer this week is Julia Betemps . Julia is the owner of Little Paper Shop!!! If you are not familiar with the Little Paper Shop, please make sure to swing by the the LSP Blog to subscribe!!! Julia always has some fun Challenges going on too!!!

The LPS had a brand spankin' new Release this past week and Julia is generously offering two Stamp Sets. One from the new Release called *Butterflies* and the second one is *Beautiful Things*. Hope you all play along???

Here is my card...
.
I haven't used this beautiful SU Set - Fresh Cuts in a while. For the layout I used the TECC62 Sketch. This card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".

The DP is from the Patterns Pack Design Collection (Hostess Level I Set) from the last Catalog.

The Real Red CS was pierced. The circles were done with the Nestie's. the 7/8" Black Satin Ribbon is from Walmart. Plus I added the large Silver Pearls (Michael's) on each side. Each of the panels were raised with Stampin Dimensionals.

Hope you like it???

******************************
Here is another card. I used the beautiful Fresh Cuts Set again.

The card base measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". I cut the image into panels and layered them with Black CS. Next I layered them onto Whisper White and Real Red CS. The whole panel was raised with Stampin Dimensionals.

Before I added the the image onto the card base I attached the Styled Silver Label Holder with the 1/4" Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon.

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

Next is my card for the IC177 - Kleenex and for the WT215 - using White, white and more white!!! You all know it's right up my alley :)

I chose this cute little box for my inspiration. I used - *Beautiful Things* from Little Paper Shop this is one of the Set's that you will be able to win by participating in the OCC Challenge :)!!!

Of course I had to use my favorite Color Combo - Black, Red and White !!!

I really like the two-step stamp images, because I can accomplish so may different looks with them. Make sure to stop by the LSP gallery for more ideas!!!

I randomly inked the flowers and added the leaves on each side. Next I decorated them with my favorite Silver Pearls (Michael's).

The sentiment was inked in Basic Black and punched out with the Large Oval Punch layered onto the new Scalloped Oval Punch found in the new Occasions Mini Catalog. I also pierced right below sentiment. The image panel and the sentiment were raised with Stampin Dimensionals.

Hope I have inspired you to play along??? Have a wonderful weekend!!! ~Silke~
