OCC Challenge - Triple Play

Hello and thanks for stopping by! Today’s card is for this week’s challenge over at Our Creative Corner. Our July hostess, Jenny Gropp, has challenged us to create a card or project using 3 or more embellishments. We warmly invite you to play along, feel free to use your favorite stamps and supplies.

Since my daughters Birthday is right around the corner, I thought I would experiment with card layouts. Hannah is our little princess and I know she will love sending these to our family and friends.

As you can see by my sample, my three embellishments are: Brads, ribbon and a button. The paper is by Making Memories called Giggle Kids, I LOVE it!! I then popped up an oval using my oval Nestabilities and layered on my pinwheel. My pinwheel measured 3.5 x 3.5 - Click here for directions. To make the stick, I cut a sucker stick and covered it with adhesive and then wrapped ribbon around it. To finish off the card, I added some fun swirls and the tag.

We hope you will join us over at Our Creative Corner, there is no time limit on our challenge, so please play along whenever you are able!! However to be eligible for the fun giveaway this week, please have your card uploaded to the OCC blog by Friday, July 24th before 6 pm central.

Have a wonderful weekend & don't forget to stop by the OCC to see the other wonderful samples by the Design Team!!

Enjoy your weekend!
