IC215, OCC Challenge


Hello everyone~
I hope my friends from U.S are having a wonderful MLK's birthday weekend and the rest of you are spending a wonderful weekend as well.
My hubby just left for work and he won't be back about a month :( It's our life and sometimes we have to suck it up and make a living for our best (these thoughts came from the experiences being Military wife), but being apart is not always easy for my family. This time, he is going to miss Kimberly's birthday, Trey's basketball games, Boy Scouts Darby race, Cheer competitions, Valentine's Day...:( Maybe, I need to clean my house to get rid of the negative mood ;)

OK, changing subjects...I made this card for SCS Inspiration challenge 215 (IC215) last night.
Nell Hill's carries beautiful things and I really want to shop for my house :) I took my inspiration from the hydrangea picture here. I also threw Our Creative Challenge (OCCC) - Color Challenge of blue and green into the card :) You really need to check out the samples of OCC team. They are so creative!

I used Garden of Friends from There She Goes. The images were colored with Copics. I also stamped the flourish images on the bashful blue DP using Flourish mini set.



Stamps: Garden of Friends, Flourish (TSG)
Paper: kiwi kiss, bashful blue dp (SU), classic white (Flourishes)
Ink: Memento tuxedo black (Tsukineko), almost amethyst, kiwi kiss, bashful blue (SU), Copic markers
Accessories: ribbon, silver pearl
Tools: Nestabilities, border punch




Thank you for stopping by.

Gorgeous card!! Sorry to hear your hubby will be gone for a month. Cleaning always helps me get my mind off of the things going on in my world. Hopefully it will do the same for you!
