OCC Hearts & Announcement



Hi all! Today's OCC Challenge is themed "Crazy for Hearts!"...make a card with two or more hearts somewhere on your project.

Before I get into the details of my card, I have a little announcement today. Some of you already know about this, but today will be my last post as an OCC blog team member. I need to free up my schedule a little bit so when Jennifer emailed us to see who wanted to sign up for another round of hosting challenges, I decided that this would be a good time to step down from the team. I'm not going far though...I still plan to participate in the OCC challenges when I can. I'll just be playing along as a challenge participant rather than a blog team member. Hugs to the OCC girls. I *HEART* you!!....get it?, it goes with today's challenge. Hehe!

Now, onto my card... Silke was such a sweetie and gave me a bunch of the new Raspberry Fizz papers and ribbon to try out. Thanks, Silke!! I made the card for you, my friend. I hope you like it.



The card measures 5.25" square. I stamped my new Leigh Hannan Garden Heart stamp from Stamper's Dream twice onto the PTI script DP, heat embossed it with black EP, colored the flowers and vines with my Copics, cut out the large heart and then cut out the inside heart, and popped them both up on Dimensionals. The bottom script panel and Labels One panel are also up on Dimensionals. There's a third heart on the inside of the card that was punched with my Creative Memories heart punch, which is also on Dimensionals. What can I say, I love puffy cards, LOL!
