OCC - Sketched Valentine Challenge


Happy Valentine's Day! I hope that you all enjoy your day get spoiled by your special someone :)

Today the challenge over at Our Creative Corner blog is a sketch challenge provided to us by our very own Laurie Schmidlin. The sketch was only half of the challenge! Because today is Valentine's Day we were to mail our card off to someone special....so one lucky person is going to be receiving this sweet Valentine :)...Oh and it already went postal earlier in the week *wink*



I decided to try something a little different with the sketch. I ended up flipping the design upside down to fit with my Whipper Snapper Bear Hugs set. I needed the comment bubble on the right hand side so of course the whole card had to be reversed to fit. Apparently I like to make things more difficult than they need to be! lol



Isn't this little bear cute? He's been accented with Pink Pirouette and Rose Red to fit right in with my new Bittersweet Basic Grey Collection that's perfect for Valentine's Day! I just love this paper with it's hint of soft pinks. Mmm...pinks and browns, it has sweetness written all over it *wink*

We would love for you to participate in this week's challenge, so just pop by the OCC Blog to see the sketch and when your done your card pop back in a leave a direct link to your blog or gallery so that we can take a peek too! If you are uploading your challenge card to SCS then don't forget to add OCCC into your keywords :) Now that I'm done babbling, click over to see this week's guest designer Tosh Leyendekker's card and all of the fabulous samples that the OCC Design Team has come up with :)
