My last OCC Challenge!!!

Happy Saturday everyone!!!

WOW I can't believe it's my last OCC Challenge today. One year has flown by super fast and it's time to move on. I sure had a fun time and the current OCC girls are so sweet and fun to work with!!! I will miss them dearly, but thank goodness we all are just one click away :) !!! I want to give a quick shout out to my OCC buddy Jenny Gropp.....she is leaving as well and I hope you all leave her some love!!!


With this said I would like to tell you about this weeks OCC Challenge.....I created this Sketch and I hope you like it??? I also invited a sweet friend of mine - Robin Kirkpatrick - to be our Guest Designer. Please make sure to stop by Robin's blog to see her gorgeous card and take on the Sketch!!! Robin is currently designing for a company called Repeat Impressions and Wendy, the owner has generously agreed to sponsor a $25 Gift Certificate for this weeks prize - wahoooo!!! Thank you Robin for joining me and Wendy thank you for being so generous!!! To find out on how to play along please swing by the OCC Blog!!!

Here is my take on the Sketch........




We are invited to a wedding in April and I thought I go ahead and prepare a card in advance!!! My main inspiration came from this weeks IC225 - Thymes. I chose this Bath Salt Envelope and ran with the beautiful colors...but kept it more on the pink/green side!!!

The flower image is from the SU Ever After Set. The sentiment is from the SU Special Blessing Set.
I inked them both in Memento Black and colored the flowers with these Copic Markers - C1, G24, R85 plus Colorless Blender. The BG was embossed with the SU Perfect Details Texturz Plate Die. The DP on the side is from the SU Bella Rose Collection and the scalloped border was created with the Scalloped Edge Punch. I accessorized the card with Pink Satin Ribbon and Silver Pearls.

Okay guys now it's your turn....I'm looking forward seeing how you use the Sketch!!!
