Feeling the OCC Blues!


Happy Saturday! I made this card this afternoon for the OCC challenge this week, which was to use 2 different shades of blue and a neutral color on your card.  I made this card to match our current snow storm, which is said to leave about 4-6 inches of snow between today and tomorrow.  I chose the colors Baja Breeze and Soft Sky, along with creamy caramel and chocolate chip to make this card. I used another CC Designs stamp set called "Sugarplum Snowmen."  I cut my main image with my nesties after I colored her with Copics.  Her shirt and part of her skates are paper pieced.  The paper is from the Soft Sky and Baja Breeze prints packs.  For the sentiment, I cut a clear acetate snowflake with my Big Shot (which actually didn't cut all the way through, so I cut it out from the impression left), used a Felt Flurry, and rhinestone brad along with my sentiment cut from my Word Window punch.  The clear acetate snowflake is a bit hard to see in the picture, but it is layered on the bottom.
This was the first time I decorated the inside of my card. Since it's so difficult to write on Chocolate Chip paper I thought I'd give it a try. I showed my Mom and was met with enthusiastic approval, so it might be a new regular for me...

Have a great rest of your day!
