OCC Challenge Triple Play!

Challenges Challenges...........isn't life full of them! Nice thing is that Card Challenges are enjoyable, aren't they? Unlike my computer challenges that I've been facing all week! Seems like I have it all under control no though, so hopefully smooth sailing from here (please keep your fingers crossed for me!

This card was created for the OCC! This week our July hostess, Jenny Gropp, has challenged the OCC to a TRIPLE PLAY Challenge... Less is not always more! You must pick at least three types of embellishments to use on your card or project. These are your choices: Brads, Eyelets, Bling, Ribbon, Buttons, Thread/Floss, Beads, Charms, Rub Ons, Liquid Applique, Crystal Lacquer. There is no time limit on our challenges - feel free to participate whenever you are able. To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave us a comment linking to your project so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC.

My Three embellishments are Stitching, Rub Ons from SU! and Teensy Tiny flower sequins from the Dollar Store! Sweet Yuki is headed to my cousin tomorrow! We're heading out on a road trip to Renfrew Ontario, to spend the day with my Cousin Suzanne and her family to celebrate her Birthday! Boy I hope the weather holds up and we can take the convertible!

Yuki is a digitial image from InStyle Stamps. I am loving the Digi Images! They are so easy to store and you can resize them if you like, which is very cool if you want to work on a project that requires a bigger image! Perfect for Scrap Booking! The Paper is Baby Pink Dark from Prism, which almost has a Coralish Colour a perfect match for the Pink Grapefruit Versamark Chalk ink that I used to sponge in the colour around the image! The DP is from the latest collection of Basic Grey! So pretty that I didn't want to add too much to the layers as I wanted to showcase the paper. Don't forget to check out our Design Team Websites to see their gorgeous creations.

I received this pretty award from my fellow OCC and Hanna Stamps Design Team friend, Joycelyn . You must have a peek at her blog, because it's truly lovely!!!! Thanks Joycelyn, you're a sweetie!!! Here a just a couple of my favourite blogs!
