Big Fun Flower Thanks

For this week's challenge at Our Creative Corner, our hostess, Sarah Gough, has a fun sketch challenge. I combined this challenge with the color combo posted at Create with Connie and Mary for this week: Rich Razzleberry, Not Quite Navy, Old Olive and River Rock. I love this combo - it's amazing! I confess I did alter the sketch just a bit since I couldn't bear to cover up the flower with my sentiment. I hope you'll forgive me. ;)

I chose to feature a new Big Shot die that will be available in the Occasions Mini that goes into effect in January. This die is called Fun Flowers, and it really lives up to its name - they are fabulous. After I cut out the three flowers, I added leaves that I made with the Blossom Petals punch that will also be available in the Occasions Mini. To add dimension I curled the flower petals with a bone folder and scored the leaves down the center. To the middle of the flower I added an antique brad. My background papers pull in the same colors with a mix of current and retired DP, and for the sentiment I used A Word for You on a rectangle cut with the clear rectangle Sizzlit. For final touches I added just a bit of paper piercing and three vintage brads - too bad they're retired because they match the antique brad perfectly!

Be sure you go see what the rest of the OCC team has made for this challenge - the creations are always fabulous! Then play along with us and show us your own work - we love to see what you come up with!
