OCC Challenge, IC184 and a Bonus Card!!!

Hey you all!!!

Hope life is treating you well these days....??? This has been a busy Vacation Bible School week for us...but it's all good the girls had fun and I'm exhausted - LOL!!!

As you can tell my blog has been neglected this week, but I'm happy to show you a card today for the OCC Challenge!!! Today's Challenge is all about using your favorite *Border Punch* !!! I decided to use this SU Eyelet Punch first....I'm also showing off some of the new Stampin Up goodies!!!

I also combined the OCC Challenge with the IC184 - Lovely Package. It was hard deciding what fun package I should use for inspiration, but at last I settled with this Health and Beauty product - I really liked the flowers and the color on it!!!

I started out by using a retired Long Note - Kraft base. I scorted the top part of the card for additional interest.

Then I added the border punched White CS. I also added two scored lines on the bottom part. Next I adhered the fabulous new *Razzleberry Lemonade DP* plus I added the new 1/2" Polka-Dot Rich Razzleberry Ribbon.

For the main image I used the SU Ever After Set. I added the new In-Color *Rich Razzleberry CS* right below. The image itself was colored with an Old Olive Marker as well as the new Rich Razzleberry Marker!!! This is so exciting....Stampin Up is finally offering the matching In-Color Markers this year - I love it!!!

At last I inked the sentiment from the same Ever After Set in Basic Black and added my favorite Silver Pearls (Michael's).

Make sure to swing by the OCC Blog to see all the samples and for close ups visit the OCC ladies on their blog - Cindy, Jennifer, Vicki, Frances, Jenny and Joycelyn.
***************************************

Hold on there is more......

Since I was in the groove of card making I thought I'd show you some more ideas with the new In-Colors....this time I'm using the There She Goes - Butterfly Happiness Set.

Again I used the *Razzleberry Lemonade* DP Collection.

The butterflies were inked in Crushed Curry first and then Basic Black. The leaves in the background were inked in Dusty Durango onto Dusty Durango CS.
Next I added the sentiment and I pierced right below it. To finish it all up I added the Silver Pearls.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!?! Thanks for stopping by!!!
