Come play a challenge!

Good Saturday Morning!
I'm happy it's the weekend! I'm going to stay in the basement all day!! We have been in a heat wave here and I'm thankful that Brian talked me into a portable air conditioner from Costco a few weeks ago!
Are you all ready to play in a couple of challenges?!
My first card is a combination of two fantastic challenges.
This week I challenged the girls from Our Creative Corner to make a card with NO designer paper and a MAX of 4 layers! I LOVE to layer so this was a great challenge. Of course once I sat down to make something, I was LOST...but thankfully I had Lauren's Saturday sketch to use and it was perfect for the max layers!!
I'd recently gotten this new Unity stamp set called Diva-Lish and couldn't wait to ink it up!
I paired the new SU! In Colour Pacific Point with PTI's Lemon Tart. I like the combo...what do you think?
Don't forget to check out the other OCC girls cards as well! Plus Julee is joining us again!
Stamps: Diva-Lish; Cardstock: Pacific Point, PTI Lemon Tart, PTI white; Inks: Pacific Point; Accessories: PTI ribbon, Square Crystal Brads, Swiss Dots embossing folder, Primas, Dimensionals
Lauren's sketch team:
Be sure to check out what the other girls have done with the sketch as well!
I've got another Anni-VERVE-sary card to share with you today. Have I mentioned how much I am loving these sketches each day?! Julee is rocking them out!! I've got four more to work on this weekend...yah!
Stamps: Fluttering By; Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, WW and Bella Rose DP; Inks:Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette; Accessories: Aqua Painter, Oval Nesties, May Arts Ribbon, SU! scalloped edge punch, Corner rounder punch, Dimensionals,Pearls
I've got another cool sneak peek from CC Designs to share with you today! Christine has come up with some awesome scene stamps. I'm loving these since I can't draw a blade of grass...lol You will find clouds, grass, flowers...it's a must have set! It will be available on August 11th from All That Scraps.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Great cards! Gotta check out the challenge on OCC, I am still working on Verve too.
These are just fabulous and I couldn't imagine not using DP!!! Great idea for a challenge though.
Thanks for sharing.

Love your butterfly card. The DSP is one of my favorites. Your cards are just so full of life. It must be like Christmas when a recipient gets a card from you!

Gorgeous cards. I particularly love the butterfly one. So effective. I'm glad the sun is shining somewhere at the moment as in Scotland it is pouring with rain! More like Autumn here at the moment! Enjoy your weekend. Hugs, Lainy x
