OCC - A Yummy Color Challenge!!!

Happy Saturday everyone!!!

So what do you have going on this weekend.....anything fun???

Well - I have to do some serious cleaning.....out with the old and rearrange the new stuff :)!!!
My girls want to have a *Garage Sale*......this would be our first and they are so excited!!!

Any good tips you can give me??? E-mail me under silkeledlow@yahoo.com

Anyway - I know you are not here to listen to my rambling - so let's get started with the OCC Challenge!!!

Dana came up with this yummy Color Challenge.....


As soon as I saw these colors and the inspiration photo I had to go and grab my Cupcake Mix & Match Set from There She Goes. It's just tooooo yummy-licious!!! Did I ever mention my sweet friend Nina Brackett designed this Set???

So here is my take on the CC.......




















Can you believe I made this a 5- layered card....??? I can't - LOL!!!
I used the awesome layout from the C4C2 Sketch last week.

The colors are - White, Chocolate Chip, Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink.

Don't forget to swing by the OCC Blog to check out all the Samples!!!

Have a great weekend!!!

Ahhhh, beautiful!!! I love all the gorgeous layers, especially the embossing! Was good to see you on the forum last night, but I had to catch up today to see all that I missed last night!! LOL A roller coaster ride in my computer chair.....and I forgot to unsubscribe, so can you imagine my email stuffed with over 300 msgs afterward!? LOL

Kraftyaunt said...

Thanks for the memories!! As soon as I saw your card it brought back a rush of happy time thoughts. Back in the seventies, whenever we'd visit my aunt - she seemed to be in the middle of baking a wedding cake (or at least it seemed to me since I was a kid, that the cake was so beautiful it had to be only for a wedding!) and the only decorations she'd put on the cake - roses from white icing and those tiny silver balls in the middle of each flower and scalloped drape! So of course, your card put a smile on my face and a pause in my thoughts! Thank you.

Sandee said...

This is so pretty Silke! Love the colors and the four cb panels behind the image!

NinaB said...

This is beautiful, Silke. You always amaze me how you can make my simple illustrations into such gorgeous creations. I'm blessed to call you friend (that sounds like a stamp, doesn't it? But it's TRUE) :-).

Robin Kirkpatrick said...

Terrific card, Silke! Love your comment about all the layers! It's not your usual CAS style, but you did a great job with it! My birthday is next month if you're looking for someone to send it to! LOL!

Bev J. said...

Love it all-a fav color combo. Like the embossed corners. Pretty.

Amy Sheffer said...

Yummy indeed!! Gorgeous card, Silke!

the funkie junkie said...

Just beautiful, as always Silke! A multi-layered card to match a multi-layered cake, but still so clean and simple. I love the embossed squares and the silver pearls. Fab job!!

Hugs,
Linda

Dawn B. said...
