OCC: Blue, Red and Pink

Hi Paper Crafting Friends!

Lots of fun stuff happening at Our Creative Corner. First let me say welcome to a few new team members who will be starting their place on the team in a few weeks:

Lisa Minckler - You Made Me Ink
Kim Price - Inkcognito
Paula McClane - Scrap Addict's Attic
Liliana Inguanti - Stampin' From Home

I can't wait to see what they add to our challenges each week!

Now onto this week's challenge. Today, Sharon is throwing a color challenge your way with Navy Blue, Red and one additional color of your choice (not including neutrals). To give a little inspiration, take a look a this: 

And for a little more inspiration, a quote:
"I'd rather be doing nothing with you than something with anyone else."

This week I'm showcasing a project with blue, pink and red. 

I cut strips in 1" pieces and adhered them to a thin piece of paper at an angle. Then I trimmed them to 4.5" x 4.5" to fit on my 5" x 5" white card base.

Then I stamped the sentiment on a piece of white card stock, trimmed one corner with the little banner angles and adhered it to the card with some foam adhesive dots. Truth be told, I did have a little floofy ribbon embellishment to add but it looked a little out of place so I decided to leave it off. 

I hope you're inspired enough to get working on a project and submit it to this week's challenge. Take a look at what the other OCC designers have put together for us this week:

  1. I love the addition of the red... it's what I'd been toying with, but I'm not sure I'd get anything which pleased me as much as this! Lovely!
