OCC April Sketch Challenge

Good Morning!! It's Saturday and you know what that means...time for another OCC Challenge!! This week Silke Ledlow gave us an awesome sketch challenge to work with which you can find over on the blog!!! And if that's not enough to get you playing along...Jessica Knutsen from There She Goes has so generously offered to give away one of her new Stamp sets for a prize this week! Tweeterpated is a really great, versatile set that can be used for Easter, Spring, or pretty much anytime of year! Thansk Jessica!

Here is my challenge card!

This is such a great sketch...I just love all the different elements! The long rectangle is perfect for any of those long characters or flourishy-flowery stamps! I decided to go with one of my much loved She's All That gals from Stampin' Up! I used a Sizzix flower die for my circle element and layered it on black to make it stand out! The paper is both sides of a sheet of My Mind's Eye dp paired with some Gable Green and Black! The image and sentiment are stamped with Versamark and embossed with black ep. Everything is on dimensionals so by the time I got the main panel I had to layer them THREE times to overlap the flower...this card is popped UP!!! Lol!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today and remember to head over to the OCC Blog to see all of the other AMAZING creations the team came up with!!

I hope everyone is enjoying a beautiful Easter weekend!!
