OCC Color Challenge

Hi everyone, hope you're enjoying the weekend so far! I myself am with Silke at the Orlando SU Regionals...this post was prescheduled so I hope it comes up okay. If you're at the Regionals or you're heading down there today, be sure to look for us and say hi, okay?? {smile}

Today's OCC challenge from Jennifer is to create a card using two shades of blue. Check it out on the OCC blog! For more detailed info on everyone's beautiful cards, here are links to their blogs: Dawn, Lynda, Jackie, Silke, Kim, Laurie, Julee, Cindy, Amy, Jennifer, and our special guest this week is Julia Aston!!!

My card is a 5.25" square card, and the two shades of blue that I used are Bashful Blue and Ballet Blue. This cute mailbox with the cupcakes is from the new Special Delivery set from There She Goes. I stamped the cupcakes onto Ballet Blue and Bashful Blue CS, cut out the ones on the Ballet Blue CS, glued them down with adhesive, cut out the cupcake tops from the Bashful Blue CS, and popped the tops up on Dimensionals. The sentiment circles are also on Dimensionals. The layout is another awesome sketch from Amy Rysavy (Sketch AMYRS21).

Stamps: There She Goes Special Delivery
Paper: Neenah Natural White, Canson Watercolor Paper, Ballet Blue, Bashful Blue, Basic Black
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Ballet Blue, Bashful Blue, Basic Black, Certainly Celery, Real Red
Accessories: Ballet Blue Ribbon and Brads, SU Scallop Edge Punch, Dimensionals, Ornare Piercing Template, Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities
Technique: Watercoloring
Card Size: 5.25" Square

Okay, now go have FUN I'll be doing! Weee!!
