OCC Music Challenge and IC217, SC265, Curtain Call #14

Howdy friends!!!

Thank you for all the well wishes...my girls and I are feeling much better!!! First it was Miriam and me and then on Tuesday evening Rebecca joined in with a stomach bug...fun, fun, fun!!! Thank goodness it passed quickly....now we are just trying to get back to our regular sleeping schedule!!!

Well, it is Joycelyn's last OCC Challenge for the month and she is challenging us to create a card using *Music* for your inspiration. Any instrument, any song, any genre!!!

When I saw Betty's SNTODBD02 this week I knew exactly what Set to use!!! This Challenge was also to add *Dimension and Texture*!!! Can you actually believe I made this four layered card...crazy huh??? Not my usual style, but I must admit I like it :) !!!



The bird image is from the ODBD Sing to the Lord Set. The BG Set is from the ODBD Amazing Grace Hymn.

I inked the bird image with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored it with Copic Markers. I inked the image a second time, cut some of the flowers out, colored them and raised them with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The card was finished off with the Laced Ribbon, some sponging and my fav Silver Pearls.

Please make sure to stop by the OCC Blog to see all the wonderful Samples the Team has created!!!

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

My next card was created for a few different Challenges.

First the IC217 - Espe. I chose these bangles in the second row as they match this weeks Curtain Call Color  Combo #14. The Sketch is from the SC265.


I totally fell in love with these colors....but must admit I had to think about what Set I'd use with it?!?



I opted for my fav PTI Set Life - it's perfect for multi colors!!!

I started out by scoring my layered CS. Next I randomly inked the flower with the CC colors, tied a Ribbon around it and added the Button with the Silver Pearl.  To finish it all off I added some more Silver Pearls between the scored lines.

Hope you like it???

Have a wonderful weekend and make sure to come back on Tuesday for a fabulous Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge!!!
