OCC Sketch Challenge including IC183 and a bonus card

Happy Saturday everyone!!!

I'm having sooooooo much fun seeing all your wild guesses for my *Anniversary Blog Candy* giveaway!!! Click here to play along - you have only till tomorrow!!!

If you want to win even more goodies make sure to play along in today's OCC Sketch Challenge!!! To find out all the details and to see the Samples from the entire team please swing by the OCC Blog!!!

I combined the OCC Sketch with today's IC183 - Design Dazzle!!! I chose this beautiful Tween Girls Room for my inspiration!!! I really liked the beautiful colors and translated them into - Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Purely Pomegranate plus I had to add the Chocolate Chip for the tree image.

I thought I'd use the super cute SU - Branch Out Set as my main image. This Set is featured on page 100 in the current SU Catalog!!! Are you all ready for the new Catalog to come??? I know I am - wahhooooo!?!

I started out by adding the Regal Rose DP from the Hostess Level 1 Patterns Pack Collection. I added a double row of piercing in between the DP.

Next I stamped the tree, bird house and tire swing image with Chocolate Chip. The leaf dots are inked with Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery. The sweet little butterflies were inked in Purely Pomegranate.

The sentiment is from the SU All Holidays Set and I also inked it in Chocolate Chip. I also added some piercing right below the sentiment!!!

To finish it all off I added the Certainly Celery Ribbon and the Silver Brads.

Want to see more inspiration close up - swing by the OCC ladies - Cindy, Jennifer, Vicki, Frances, Loretta, Jenny and Joycelyn Turner.

Hope you will have a chance to play along this week?!? ~TFL~

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

Here is a card I made with the newly released There She Goes Set - Rejuvenate.

I think this is such a fun girly girl Set and I also like that you can either color it a little bit or a lot. Today I decided to color it just a little bit!!! If you want to see more ideas with this Set make sure to check out the TSG Gallery!!!

My choice of colors for this card is - Bashful Blue, White and Berry Sorbet DP (PTI).

The image itself was inked in Memento Black and colored with matching Copic and Prisma Markers - E00, B34, E47, YG91 and PM-6.

To dress the card up a bit I added some piercing to the Bashful Blue CS. I added some Angel Wings Shimmerz to the bubble bath and the floating bubbles. At last I added the row of Silver Pearls on the side.
Hope you will have a wonderful weekend and thank you for stopping by today!!!
