OCC Challenge - Happy Fall Y'all !!!!

Happy Saturday!!!

Today we have another fun OCC Challenge for you!!! Dana is challenging us to created a *Fall/Autum* card/project!!!

I combined my OCC card with the IC197 - CWDKids. I chose this adorable dress.....!!! I really liked these pretty, rich fall colors!!! I don't think I would have added *turquoise* to my fall card....but I really thought it was striking...!!!

Anyway - here is my take on both Challenges.......





















The Stamp I used is from the newly released There She Goes - Treemendous Mini Set.

I inked the blooms with these colors - Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust, Tempting Turquoise, Marigold Morning. The Design Paper is from the beautiful BasicGrey - Marrakech Collection.

To finish the card off I added some mini Silver Pearls to the blooms and the Vintage Button on top of the sentiment tag.

Hope you have a chance to play along this week!?! Make sure to stop by the OCC Blog for all the Samples from the Team!!!

Have a great weekend!!! We are off to see another GSU Volleyball game today - wahooooo!!!

I always think your cards are just amazing! Hugs, Andrea xxx
