OCC Sketch, IC201 A Note of Thanks

Happy Saturday everyone!!!

It's Volleyball weekend again.....GSU played last night and we won.... wahoooo!!! There is one more game this afternoon and I can't wait to see it!!! Our girls are on *fall break* this upcoming week....we'll take it easy and I hope I get to stamp at least a little bit :) ?!?

For today's OCC Challenge Lori challenged us to use this Sketch.

I combined the Sketch with today's IC201 - TzaddiShop. What an awesome inspiring handmade jewelry shop!!! I was inspired by this awesome reversible - *Pink Puff* necklace ......I really liked these colors....!!!

As you can tell this Sketch works really great with a larger card size too. This one measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".



















I interpreted the colors from the necklace like this - White, Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo!!! I tried hard to incorporate some of the green as seen on the necklace, but it just didn't work for me :(

The Set I used is Kind & Caring Thoughts. The center flower was inked twice and raised up. The sentiment is from Sweet Little Sentiments Set - I inked it in Basic Black.

The DP is from the Crushed Curry Patterns Designer Series Collection. I again decorated the card with some piercing and this time I also used some Clear Gemstones. I finished the card off with the yummy Raspberry Fizz Ribbon (which matches the Melon Mambo perfectly!!!).

Please stop by the OCC blog to see all the Samples with the Sketch!!! Hope you'll have time to play along???

Enjoy your weekend and thank you so much for stopping by today!!!
