OCC Sketch meets IC182 and TSG Sneak Peek Blog Hop!!!

Happy Saturday everyone!!!

Today is a long post.....the OCC is featuring a Sketch Challenge!!! I took the opportunity to combine this Sketch to showcase the There She Goes Sneak Peek and the IC182 - Book Covers!!!
For all the Samples the OCC ladies have created please check out the OCC Blog!!! Hope you will play along??? Jennifer is giving some more goodies away!!! Plus we have another Guest Designer!!!

There She Goes is releasing two new Set's tomorrow...we'll showcase them both today!!! This first Set is called Act of Kindness !!!

I waited till the last minute to create this card, because I really wanted to play the IC182 and I figured it would help me decide which route to go on my card.....well I was darn lucky, because Stef has chosen some awesome book covers for the inspiration pieces...and when I saw this book *Breakfast at Tiffany's* I knew what to do.....!!! The colors go perfectly with the There She Goes Color Challenge - using Black, White plus one other color of your choice!!! Swing on over to Jessica's blog to find out all the details and on how you can play along!!!

If you follow my blog you know that my favorite color combo is - Black, White and Red. Wahooo - I chose Red as my third color!!!

I started with a Real Red card base and layered it with a White CS. The corners of the White CS were punched with an EK Success Corner Adorner Punch.

I stamped the tree image in Basic Black. I added on some leaves to the tree from the same Set. Next I inked the flowers in Real Red and cut them out. I added some Stampin Dimensionals to raised them up . Then I decorated them with my favorite Silver Pearls.

I also decorated the inside of my card. I cut another smaller White CS and punched out the corners. Next I inked the smaller floral image in each corner and the sentiment in the center.

To finish the Sketch off I added the three Real Red panels in the center and also decorated them with Silver Pearls.

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

On to the next Sneak Peek......

This Set is called Rejuvenate!!! It's a perfect girly girl Set!!!

My card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".

I inked the image with Memento Black and colored it with Copic & Prisma Markers - E00, B34, R27, PM-132 and PM-208.

For the the *bubble bath* I added some Angel Wings Shimmerz - it gives it a super awesome shine :).

Next I trimmed the image and layered it onto White CS. For the BG panels I used Real Red and So Saffron CS.

To finish the card up I added some 1/2" Real Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and some Silver Pearls.

Okay everyone.... now to the fun part - do you want to win these Set's??? Comment on all of the Trendsetters Blogs on their Sneak Peek post. When you are done go to Jessica's blog and add your name to the Mister Linky. You do not have to have a blog to play along, you can also use the URL of your favorite online craft gallery!!!

Since I'm last in the blog hop line I want to make sure you have seen all the awesome cards my team members have created!!!

Hop on over to - Jessica, Becky, Christi, Faith, Holly, Jessie, Joanne, Jodi, Julie, Krystie and Makiko.

Have a fabulous weekend and I hope you get a chance to play all the Challenges??? ~TFL~
