Oh so pretty ...


Oooohhhhh ... this card was SO MUCH FUN TO MAKE!!!  I based my design off of Our Creative Corner's current challenge - 'Case an OCC Girl'!  How much fun is THAT!  My favorite OCC girlie is LINDA COUGHLIN, and I decided to case her gorgeous, monochromatic 'Load it Up' card.  It was so much fun combing through my baskets of stash to find the right embellies to come close to Linda's design :)  Lots of Prima, Webster's Pages, Zva and Stampin' Up! goodness on this sweetie pie card!!!

Challenges that fit this design:

Our Creative Corner - CASE an OCC girl!
Fussy and Fancy #13 - monochromatic with wings
Cupcake Inspirations #64  - colors
Just a little something - white, blue and black (I antiqued the edges of my papers with black)
Crazy 4 Challenges #42 - paper flowers
Meljen's Designs #12 - ribbon, lace or fibers
Paper Sunades #23 - pretty as a princess/girly
Really Reasonable Ribbons #2 - ribbon as a border
The Play Date Cafe #34 - white, blue and black
KL Stampin' N' Scrappin' #35 - Let's Get Shabby
Papertake Weekly - ice cream colors
Joan's Gardens Thursday Challenge #2 - vintage and use a nestability
