OCC Color Challenge!!!

Happy Saturday everyone!!!

Guess what.... I'm heading to Lubbock, Texas tomorrow to do some *House Hunting*....I'm so looking forward to it. Don't worry...I won't miss none of the online action.....I'm bringing my laptop!!!

I want to say a HUGE *THANK YOU* to everyone who played last weeks Sketch!!! I had so much fun stopping by your blogs and galleries!!! I was blown away by how many people played too....YOU GUYS ROCK!!!

Want to know what this weeks OCC Challenge is??? Well...it's a *Color Challenge*....please use these colors - Pink, Yellow, Green and Brown (any shade) on your card/project. If you decide to play along I have a prize for you to win too!!! That's right...I'll be giving  away a *MYSTERY PACKAGE* filled with fun goodies!!! Please check out all the details right HERE!!!!

Here is my idea.....


The fun bright colors and the image were inspired by this weeks IC223 - Warm Biscut......what a fun store to shop and what great inspiration pieces!!! I used the colors Yoyo Yellow, Pink Passion, Wild Wasabi and Chocolate Chip. I chose this darlin' Extra Large Tree Wallie as my inspiration piece!!! The tree image is from the Branch Out Set from Stampin' Up.

The DP is from the BasicGrey Nook & Pantry Collection. I also added a punched out border and decorated it with Silver Pearls.  The card was finished off with some matching Ribbon and a Button.

Please stop by the OCC Blog to see all the awesome Samples from the Design Team!!!

Enjoy your weekend and I'll be stopping by your entries soon!!! Oh and make sure to come back on Tuesday I'm hosting the Flourishes Timless Tuesday Challenge too :)!!!
