OCC Sketch Challenge #49

It's Thursday! That means it's time for the Our Creative Corner sketch challenge! (OCC also has a color challenge going use blue and green, if you want to make a 2nd card...or combine.) Make sure to use Mr. Linky on the OCC blog. Here is the sketch:

I made a 5x5 card and then got out my vast Basic Grey stash! I have been trying to shop my stash as much as possible. And you won't even believe what I find when I dig around. The other day it was that cute Disney stuff, today it's this fabbie Basic Grey Bittersweet line that I did not even know I had. I keep my BG together, but somehow the Bittersweet line got stuck in with my Valentine's/Love bag. Happy find!

I also used a Cuttlebug embossing folder (Textile).

I pop dotted some of the cardstock stickers and added a few buttons to give them some added dimension. I love the rich colors of chocolate brown and deep red!

I must again apologize for the photos...rainy weather does not help me to take good photos!


  1. Ohhhh, love it!! Lots of possibilities with that sketch! I played along with the color, now I may have to do the sketch too! First I've got 4 projects to upload to CPC!! Have a great day!
