OCC Challenge

~You're Still The One~

Today's OCC Challenge is to make a gift box or tag. I made several boxes that just weren't working for me and ended up in the trash. Than I started to panic that i would have nothing to post for our challenge. So I decided to go with a tag and put it on my card. Does my background look familiar? I redid the card I made on Wednesday, I just wasn't happy with it. Guess I'm not happy unless I have a ton of stuff on my card.
**************
I used Julee Tilman's Awesome MOJO Sketch #57. I did add a extra piece but Julee's sketch was my inspiration.........

  • STAMPS: MFT Chives. Sentiment: Verve Stamps, Feeling Groovy
  • INK: Copic markers
  • PAPER: Blue, plum, white
  • Spellbinder dies, Big Shot Bigz Top Note, ribbon, Martha Stewart fern punch, brad, Martha Stewart border punch, glitter, cuttlebug.

~Chives~

Pin It!
