OCC Sketch #17

Hi everyone - long time no blog! I've had a completely offline week, filled with good books, snuggling, lots of crochet, baking and getting things done around the house, it's been lovely and quiet. The weather here has been very cold and wet - great weather for relaxing by the fire!

This week's OCC Sketch got me back into my stamping room and creating - this is a great sketch that you can dress up with lots of embellishments, or keep it simple like I did.

I've used the Stampin' Royalty colours for this week - Rich Razzleberry, Certainly Celery & Pretty in Pink. Soft Summer must be my all-time favourite two-step stamping set I think - it just looks so pretty in any number of colour combos.

I kept the inside of this one really simple - I used the Top Note die to cut my layer, and added a sentiment from the Best Yet hostess set.

Head on over to the OCC Sketch blog to see the wonderful design team creations!
