OCC.....Happy Birthday

This week our challenge hostess is Rebecca Ednie from Eclectic Endeavours and her challenge for us is:

Reuse your Packaging! Use those boxes, cans, bags, plastic clamshells or embellishment bubbles you might usually throw out to create a fabulous project!

This was another toughie for me, and my card is really not my style at all, but after I got into making it I kinda like the outcome. I decide early on that I would use some torn apart cardboard from a box. I cut a piece of cardboard the size I needed and then just peeled off one side to expose the corrugated part. I inked it up a bit with some distressing ink, by just rubbing the cardboard over the ink pad. I got out some retired DSP, I think this is called Au Chocolate. I used a bit across the bottom part of the card.

I made a lace flower by gathering some lace and forming a circle and stitching together. I added an antique brad to the center. I used some swirls cut from chocolate card stock and little leaves cut from the DSP to tuck in around the lace flower.

The sentiment is from the Something to Celebrate stamp set. I stamped with chocolate chip ink onto very vanilla card stock and cut the sentiment into two pieces.

I hope you’ll play along this week and have fun with this challenge! Be sure to check out the rest of the OCC design team creations! To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave a comment linking to your project over at Our Creative Corner so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC.

Well, that is all from me for now, Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
