2nd Post in one day... OCC Challenge!!

Can you believe it... 2nd post in one day! I don't do this very often! Tonight I decided to do the OCC Challenge from LAST Saturday as I didn't have a chance to make a card during the week... I just love this sketch! :)

I just received my Flight of the Butterfly set and decided to pick a fun DP by Scenic Route to play with. Using SU! punches to create the circles and before punching them I stamped Dot Circles by Hero Arts. I used my CuttleBug D'vine Swirl for motion with the butterflies. The butterflies are embossed with SU! Real Red and Crystal Clear on the larger butterfly. "YOU" is white embossed. My 2nd photo shows a close up of the layering, embossing and 3-D effect.

Click on the photo's to get a closer look! Enjoy... and thanks again for visiting.... YOU ROCK!!

Smiles... Michelle :)

You nailed that sketch challenge, Michelle! I love everything about it... the embossing, the color combo, the placement of the sentiment... it's all beyond good, it's great!

I'm so glad you've been able to stamp this past weekend. I did manage to make a card last night, but too tired to take a photo and post before bedtime. Hopefully can do this evening.

Is it 5:00 yet? LOL

Love ya!
