OCC...Wedding Challenge

Good Saturday Morning Peeps. It is time for another new challenge over on the Our Creative Corner Blog. This week our challenge hostess is the fabulous Sharon Wheet from Designs by Sharon. Sharon has challenged us to make a Wedding card or project. Here is what Sharon said:

For this weeks challenge, we want to see you create a soft and elegant wedding-theme paper craft item, card, project, or scrapbook page. There are a few requirements for this challenge, tho. To be consider as one of our top picks, you must include: sheer fabric (organza, tulle, etc.), some trim (ribbon, lace, bakers twine, crochet trim, etc.), a flower (hand-made/bought), at least one pearl, and some stitching (faux, hand, or machine.).

I have had a rough week, well since mid-week anyway and it is certainly effecting my mojo. This is the second card I made today and I really am not thrilled with this one but it is much better than the first. I also had a bit of time getting all the elements on here and  I still think I missed one of them, but it has been a long day and I don't want to start over again. BLAH!!

I used a base of Blushing Bride card stock and I followed that with some very vanilla card stock. The DSP is from the hostess in-color print pack. I stamped the flower image from Happiness Shared onto some very vanilla card stock and colored it with my aqua painter. I used some blushing bride and old olive ink. I shaded around the image with crumb cake and splattered with some soft suede ink. I added the faux stitching around the image with a soft suede marker.

The crochet trim is some I had in my stash. I then added some very vanilla ribbon, (my sub for sheer fabric, it is a stretch I know!) My flower is the stamped image and I used alot of pearl swirls. I stamped the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set with soft suede ink.

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 today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

That is a lot of things to have to remember on one card! I would inevitably forget one LOL! The flower is gorgeous as are the pearl swirls. Hope your week is getting better...huge (((hug)))

Vicki, I just love how you stitched around the focus panel, instead of the whole card! I think it draws your eye to the center! I love the soft pretty colors, too! I think your card is fabulous!
