OCC Sketch Challenge!!!

Happy weekend!!!

Guess what?!? It's my turn to host this months OCC Challenge!!! I can't believe it is March already...I sure hope it's a better one then last month...KWIM??? This will be actually my last month with the OCC....it's been a  fun year!!! Since we are moving this summer I figured I'd free up my schedule a bit more!!!

For today I created this Sketch for you and I hope you have time to play along with us?!?


It's pretty straight forward and if you don't like square cards... than just go with a regular size as long as you stay true to the Sketch!!!

Okay here is my take on it......



I created this sweet treat bag with the Sizzix Bag with Scallops Bigz XL Die.
I added a Small Cello Bag in the center and filled it up with some candy :) - yummy!!!


I couldn't help myself.... I had to use this awesome For All You Do Set from SU when I saw todays IC222 - Ginko Paper!!! I chose this Bountiful Cherry Blossom Card for my inspiration as well as the colors from the Trigger Tuesday - Sweet on Spring hosted by Moxie Fab World. These colors also match this weeks Color Dare - CD58 Challenge - using Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise and Certainly Celery. The theme for the Stamp Simply #129 Challenge is to add a Punched Border...so it fits my card perfectly too :).

The embossed background was created with the Perfect Details Texturz Plate Die from SU. Each of the flowers were raised with Stampin' Dimensionals and I added Silver Pearls in the center. The border was punched out with the Eyelet Border Punch.

Don't forget to stop by the OCC Blog to see all the creations from the Team!!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I can't wait to see your take on the Sketch!!! Hugs ~S~
