Stamping 411 meets OCC....

I really like the stamping 411 website. They focus on stampin up supplies, which is what I have the most supplies of. The challenge this week was another easy sketch. I'm finding it's harder when the sketches are easy, because I have too many ideas floating in my head, and I can't seem to settle on just one. Weird I know. Anyway, this is the sketch below. I also had been on the Our Creative Corner website and saw their new challenge for the week. It was to use 3 types of embellishments. At first I made a card that joined the two challenges. I used the 3 butterflies for the three little hearts in the above sketch, but then to use my 3 types of embellishments I added a bow, button, and pearls on my butterflies. Well, afterwards I thought that maybe we weren't really supposed to add so much "extra" to the stamping 411 challenge...
...So, I made another card for the stamping 411 challenge without all the "extras".

Everything on this card is retired from Stampin Up, and I don't think I had ever used the apple paper or apple stamp yet. I'm not that thrilled with it, but it will have to do for now. I was going to print off the computer the saying, "you are the apple of my eye" for the sentiment, but got to lazy. Enjoy your Saturday. Thanks for peeking in.

  8. I love the first card featuring the absolutely fabulous Old Olive bow. I agree with Gretchen, the bow is pure perfection. Is is possible that you could provide a tutorial on how to make your bow, I would love to learn. Thanks for sharing your creations.
