OCC Challenge - It's All About The Sentiment!

Good morning fellow stampers! I'm coming to you from Semans, SK, visiting my parents right now! It's Saturday and that means it's challenge time over at Our Creative Corner! This week we are to use a sentiment as our focal point! I'm pretty sure I read something AFTER I made my card about using ribbon and then I noticed that the other samples from the DT ALL had ribbon on theirs! Soooo...bonus points for using ribbon this week?!?! lol

I used one of the awesome sentiments from Unity Stamps Co! They were the first to come to mind when I saw this challenge! I recieved some of the yummy To The Nines Specialty paper from SU and my Birds and Blooms die! I stamped the sentiment with Chocolate Chip craft ink and embossed with clear ep. The edges are sponged with Choc. Chip ink and I used copper brads for accents!

There are some fabulous samples from the team over on the OCC Blog so be sure to go have a peak! You will also find the links to all their awesome blogs!

On a personal note....I am so happy to be in Saskatchewan! If you've never been there, it has the most amazing sunsets, the duck and bird population is AMAZING, and although the 'flatness' is something so many make fun is truly PHENOMENAL!! I am originally from Vancouver Island which, in my opinion, is one of Canada's best playgrounds and is truly a beautiful piece of heaven on earth!! Saskatchewan is equally beautiful, just in a different way! And.....for those of you who don't know....Semans is also the home of Cindy Haffner! I'm hoping to meet up with her while I'm exciting will that be?!?!?!?

Thanks so much for stopping in today and I hope to see some of your creations inspired by today's OCC challenge! Have a great weekend!
