OCC - Triple Play!

OCC - 3 Embellies


Hi everyone,

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

It’s OCC challenge time over on the Our Creative Corner Blog. 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 3 type of embellishments to use on your card or project. These were our choices: Brads, Eyelets, Bling, Ribbon, Buttons, Thread/Floss, Beads, Charms, Rub Ons, Liquid Applique, Crystal Lacquer.

For my card I selected a Verve sketch I found over on the Verve Member Forums of SCS to create my card. I used The Greeting Farms “ Dahlia” …. it has been too long since I have played with my stamps from TGF!

For my embellishments, if you go by the list Jenny supplied I actually have 4 not 3 so I guess I passed this challenge hehe. My embellishments are the ribbon, the brads, a button in the centre of the flower and the thread in the holes of the button. Fun challenge thanks Jenny!

Don't forget to check out the rest of the OCC Designers cards over on the OCC Blog.

Paper: White; Real Red, Tempting Turquoise & DP – SU;
