OCC Challenge, SC229 Nature of Friendship !!!

Happy Saturday everyone!!!

Today's OCC Challenge is about adding a *sentiment* as your main focal point. For all the Samples and on how to play along please visit the OCC Blog.

For my card I used the beautiful Our Daily Bread Designes Set - *I am the Way*.

The DP is from Making Handmade Card. The fab matching Satin Ribbon is from Flourishes. I finally had a change to use some of my Square Green Rhinestone Brads I have bought two years ago :) - I know sad story... LOL!!!

Have fun playing and don't forget to stop by Cindy, Jennifer, Lori Boyd, Frances, Loretta, Jenny and Joycelyn.

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

I had to stamp some more - I needed some serious *therapy* - LOL!!!!

I didn't get the chance to play the SC229 on Wednesday, but once I saw the Sketch I knew it would work with my card for the There She Goes - Week in Review Giveaway that Jessica is hosting every Sunday on her blog. Watch out for the post tomorrow!!!

Again I made the sentiment my focal point and this time I used the There She Goes Set - Nature of Friendship.

How do you like this color combo??? It's so fun and bright - I love it :)
The DP is from the SU Designer Paper - Rainbow Sherbert. I used the matching Gable Green , Green Galore and Whisper White CS plus a splash of Only Orange .

The Gable Green CS was embossed with the CB Folder - Leafy Branch. I inked the sentiment with Basic Black and pierced a frame right around it. Next I added some punched out butterflies. Before I adhered them with Stampin Dimensionals I dressed them all up with my favorite Silver Pearls.

The yummy matching Satin Ribbon is from Flourishes - unfortunately I think they are out right now :( !!! To finish it off I added some more Silver Pearls on the side!!!

Hope you'll find a favorite sentiment stamp and play along?!? Have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by!!!

Oh, I love these. I've had those Gable Green papers and ink and I don't think I've ever used them more than once. Now, you've inspired me to try again. I love the silver pearls. I'm using the more now, too - thanks to you and your beautiful cards. Have a good weekend...
