Next Saturday we will announce the NEW OCC Design Team, we hope you will stop by the OCC blog & say hello - we even have some fun goodies to giveaway!!

For this week's challenge, our August host, {me}, have put together this sketch with MUCH help from Jennifer. You could in all honesty say I couldn't have done it without her!!!






Here is my take on this challenge;



I know! What's with all the black lately?!!! I'm trying to get used to using it more, that's all. I pulled out my Eva paper for this one because it co-ordinated with this Prima flower. I've known all along that I wanted to us this flower for this sketch and so everything had to work around that one focal point. It's the flower that draws my eye first, everything else is in a supporting roll.

I pulled out an underused set I have (one of many) from Cornish Heritage Farms called Scripture Essentials I by Mona Lisa Moments. I used a fabo stamp from Extreme Elements under the scripture to give that a little extra punch. The bows - my new bow easy and I am still in my honeymoon stage with that baby! I love teeny tiny bows, and that tool makes it possible for me to make them to my hearts content.

The other OCC girls did an AMAZING job with this challenge, and they were on time, I'm late. Check out what Jocelyn, Jenny, Jennifer and Silke did.

stamps; extreme elements (SU!), scripture essentials I (cornish heritage farms )
paper; eva (basic grey), raven (bazzill)
ink; black soot distress ink (ranger), pretty in pink (SU!)
accessories; rhinestones (heidi swapp), flower (prima), buttons (basic grey), metal photo corner (embellish it!), black floss (bazzill), black satin ribbon (offray)
