OCC - Color Challenge

Happy Saturday & thanks for stopping by! :) Today's card is for a fun color challenge over at Our Creative Corner. I am hosting all of the January challenges and this week I decided on a fun color challenge. The challenge is to use two shades of blue along with a neutral color. Since I have so much paper from left from retired colors, I whipped out some of my blue bayou & soft sky. I also used some retired paper from Stampin' Up! called Spring Break.

This card was so fun to make! It has all of the fun elements I LOVE: Polka dots, embossing, layering, stitching and ribbon! Did I miss anything?
This week's guest designer over at Our Creative Corner is Julia Aston! Please stop by to see all of the wonderful samples everyone made!!

If you got time to play, we would LOVE to see your samples. There is no time limit on our challenges - feel free to participate whenever you are able. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC

Before I go, I would like to announce the winner for the custom watermark giveaway. Congratulations to Desire from Doing Life. Desire please email me at jdmeyer6@sbcglobal.net so I can get started on your watermark. :)

Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs & Smiles...

Just love that card!!!!! Who makes the elephant stamp? I've been looking for a good image for my grandson's birthday, and he just loves elephants. Nice idea for a valentine to have other colors than red and pink!!
