OCC Challenge - Mother's Day!!!

Hey you all!!! Can you believe it's May already???

Okay - I'm really freakin' out , because the end of this month my girls will be on *Summer Break* - YIKES!!! I know these next couple of weeks will fly by in no time.....help!!!

Anyway - I had so much fun hosting last months OCC Challenges!!! Thank you all for playing along!!! You guys rock and it was so fun to see people from all over the world participate - wahoooo!!!

For the month of May - Robin Willis is hosting the OCC Challenges!!! She has challenged us today to create a Mother's Day card/project!!! Make sure to swing by the OCC Blog to see all the Samples and what awesome prize you can win for playing along!!!

For this card I used the beautiful SU Bloomin' Beautiful Set.

The DP is from the Raspberry Tart Collection and I used the layout from the SC169.

The rose image was inked in Basic Black. The stem was colored with a Blender Pen using Kiwi Kiss. The rose bloom was paper pieced with the Raspberry Tart DP.

The sentiment is from the SU Fresh Cuts Set. I inked it in Basic Black and punched it out with the Small and Large Oval Punch. Next I layered it onto the new Scalloped Oval Punch.

Of course I had to use my Silver Pearls again!!! I had a lot of people asking me where to get these Pearls - they are available at Michael's!!! These are a must have for sure - LOL!!!

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

Thank goodness the IC178 - Faviana Prom Dresses helped me to create another *Mother's Day* card ( I actually have two Mother-in-Laws!!!). OMG - you have to stop by this store to see all these fabulous dresses!!! I want one of each and the bodies to match - LOL!!!

Since I still had all my stuff out from the day before I decided to go with this fantastic dress!!!

I used the same colors as above - White, Kiwi Kiss and the Raspberry Tart DP Collection. I changed the Stamp Set to Live Your Dream.

This layout is from the SC143.

The sentiment is from a different SU Set - Just So Sayings. It was inked in Basic Black. I punched it out with the Large Oval Punch and layered it onto the Scalloped Oval Punch. I also added some piercing right below.

At last I added the Silver Brads on the outsides and the Small and Larger Silver Pearls on the flowers.

Hope you like the cards and decide to play along with us?!? Just in case you wonder what card I made for my mother.... you can view it right HERE in this post!!! Have a wonderful weekend!!! ~TFL~
