CCMC OCC5 Color Challenge

Welcome to another Saturday Challenge hosted by Connie and Mary.  Pop over to Create with Connie and Mary to see more fabulous cards using this fun mix of colors: Wisteria Wonder, Soft Suede, and Pool Party.

I started the base of my card with a 1/2 sheet of Pool Party card stock.  Using Pool Party Classic Ink I inked up the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and then I ran my card stock through the Big Shot.  For just a bit more definition I rubbed the embossed dots with a Whisper White Craft Ink Pad.  The bottom strip of paper is embossed as well.  It's from the Sweet Shop Specialty Designer Series Paper collection.  

The focal point of my card is a clear sticker from the Sweet Shop Product Suite in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  These stickers are fast and fabulous for adding to cards.  The greeting comes from a FANTASTIC stamp set called Friendly Phrases.  Funny thing is I kept wanting to use this set and thought I really should get that, but I kept forgetting to add it to an order.  I am glad I did forget 'cause guess what?  I already had it!  It's a great set and if you don't have it--give me a call I'll get one ordered for you ;0)  To finish I added a ruffled ribbon bow and some Basic Rhinestone bits o' bling.

Happy craftin,
P.S.  Next week over at Create with Connie and Mary we are featuring the Attic Boutique Product Suite and vintage goodies.  The projects and tutorials are going to be incredible.  It's not too late to join.  You will get to see these and all the past five weeks of project tutorials.  A total of 36, that's right 36 unique and never before seen ideas showcasing the Occasions Mini Catalog products.
