OCC Here for You, IC199 Happy Birthday

Happy Saturday everyone!!!

Hope you all have time to stamp along with us??? Dana has challenged us to another fun OCC Challenge!!! It's all about *Monochromatic* color choices!!!

You know what...sometime I can pull it off just like that and then sometimes I have to think realy, really hard about it.....?!? My card today took me forever...I changed colors, layout etc around at least 10 times !!!

But then I came across the Christmas Cocoa Specialty DP.....which one of the DP sheets matches the Friends 24/7 Set and than I was saved - wahooooo!!!




















Please stop by the OCC Blog and check out all the samples. I hope we have inspired you to play along???

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

This card is my submission for the IC199 - The Pajama Squid. I used this fun little hairclip as my inspiration piece!!! I wasn't to crazy about the colors...so I took my color inspiration from this cute little hairclip. What can I say...we love *pink* around here - he,he,he!!!

I continued with the OCC *monochromatic* theme and stayed with the *pink colors*.



















The butterfly is from the SU Stamp Set Great Friend. The sentiment is from the A Little Birthday Cheer.

I used the Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry colors.

The layout is from the VLVSep04 Sketch...which I'm super late for and I did it without the twist!!! Plus I changed the size to 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".

At last I added some piercing, the Silver Pearls and the Pretty in Pink Ribbon.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!!! Enjoy wonderful weekend!!!
