This Saturday Kim has created an awesome *Sketch* for us to try. For all the Samples and to see *who* our Guest is please stop by the OCC Blog.
Here is my take on it.
This beautiful *Special Blessing* Set was also one of my *must have* items from the SU Catalog. The Old Olive DP is from the *Walk in the Park* Collection that is featured in the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog and it will be available April 1st. I used the Oval Spellbinder Nestie's to create the focal image and the Tag Nestie for the sentiment. I tied the tag with a Satin Ribbon. And what can I say - I'm addicted to those fab Silver Pears - LOL!!! The little flower by the cross was punched out with the Trio Flower Punch.
Now it's your turn to show us what you can created with this beautiful Sketch!!! For more inspiration please visit the rest of the OCC ladies - Cindy, Jennifer, Lori, Kim, Vicki, Frances, Robin, Loretta and Jenny.
I decided to case by BFF Denise - I chose this super cute card of hers. I like how Denise used the *recess window* on her card. That's what inspired me to use my Bigz Top Note Die and the Oval Nestie to create the recess window on my card.
Next, I used a different layout - the TECC60. I changed the colors - here is where the Inspiration Piece comes in - not only does this dress remind me of a beautiful summer, but I really like the colors - I used - Pretty in Pink, White, Rose Red, Certainly Celery - I added on top ot them - Yoyo Yellow, Plum Pudding and Lavender Lace.
At last I chanced the main image from a swing to flowers - here is where the LSC212 comes into play - using flowers on my main image plus the colors from the Soft Subtlet Collection (Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and Lavender Lace) . The Stamp Set is from the new Papertrey Ink March Release called *Life* - isn't it fab??? The sentiment is from the PTI *Women of Life* Set. I couldn't resist adding some Dazzling Diamond Glitter onto the flowers....plus the white and purple flower with the Filigree & Rhinestone Brad.
Anyway -hope that wasn't toooooo confusing - LOL?!? But now you know how this card came about.....I will be mailing this card to my mom for *Mother's Day*- since she lives in Germany - I had to plan ahead.... - hope she will like it?!?
Have a wonderful weekend and thank you for stopping by!!!
