OCC - It's a Color Challenge and more cards!!!

Happy weekend!!!

It's OCC time again!!! Joycelyn is challenging us to a Color Challenge - using only *Blue and Green* hues!!!

Here is my take on it......





I combined this card with a few other Challenges:

CCEE Sketch - CCEE1001
IC215 - Nell Hill's - using these pictures as my inspiration

Please make sure to stop by the OCC Blog for all the Samples and to see the Gift Certificate you can win!!!

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

My second card is the same CCEE10101 Sketch. I was inspired by the Stamp Simply #122 Challenge. The theme was to create a projects with a *floral theme and some fresh spring-time colors*.





I was so thrilled to play along, because I just received my new SU Set *Abundant Hope*. It screams *Spring* for sure!!! This Set is featured in the new Occasions Brochure!!!

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

My third card was for this weeks CC253 - using Pretty in Pink, Rich Razzleberry and Chocolate Chip.



Hope you like them all???

Thank you for stopping by to day!!! Have a wonderful weekend!!!
