OCC Color Challenge




This is the card I made for my first official challenge for Our Creative Corner! Kim came up with these beautiful colors to work with: Navy, Mustard, and Bashful Blue! Use the link to head over to the OCC blog for a look at the other beautiful creations the team came up with!! AMAZING!!
I used my Linen bg stamp on the Top Note panel and did a little sponging around the edges with Creamy Caramel (I don't have More Mustard...whatupwiddat??) I've had that twine forever and I'm always happy to make a card that matches with it!! I colored the stamp with my SU! Markers and did the 'thumping' technique on the flower centers. The blossom in the corner is actually a denim flower...another thing I've had forever in my stash!!
I have to admit I'm already REALLY enjoying this blog thing...I'm a little worried that the housework and children are going to suffer even more now...YIKES!! Please keep an eye out for constant changes here as I learn to add cool blinkies, winkies, widgets, and doodads!! This is going to be a fun ride and I hope you'll be back to visit often!!
