OCC Challenge - 3D Challenge

Happy weekend everyone!!!

Jocelyn has challenged us to another fun OCC Challenge...it's all about creating a 3D card or project!!! You can choose to construct something out of paper or alter something like a box, jar...whatever strikes your fancy....just have fun!!!

I decided to make a card creating a 3D look and a matching pillow box.....I hardly use my Sizzix Big Dies anymore :( and thought it would be perfect for today's Challenge.





As always I love to be inspired by the SCS Inspiration Challenges and today I used the IC214 - Groovy Inclinations.  When I saw this print I thought of the God's Beauty Set from Stampin' Up....I know weird - huh?!? I did change the colors to this weeks Color Throwdown # 74 - using Rose Red, Chocolate Chip and Dusty Durango. I also added some Certainly Celery. The layout is from this weeks MTSC55 Sketch (I flipped it).

Please make sure to stop by the OCC Blog to see all the Samples!!!

Have a great weekend!!!
