OCC color challenge

Happy Saturday all! Today is a new challenge over at The OCC..and it is a color challenge!

Now color challenges are not my favorite...I much prefer a sketch challenge...but I am happy with how this one turned out...

This is another cocoa holder....but this time I cut it with my Cricut!!! I created the cut file on my Gypsy....this is my very first cut file and I can't wait to try another one!

I wish we could share files from our Gypsy, I would love to share this with you all. Maybe in the future with an enhancement for the Gypsy!

Anyway, for this project, I used SU Handsome Hunter for the cocoa holder base, and added SU Designer paper in Sage Shadow and stamped my image using Blush Blossom and Sage Shadow. I didn't have a ribbon to match, so I took some cream ribbon and colored it with my Sage Shadow marker.

Now you might say, where is the Soft Suede? Well, I didn't have that color, so I decided to use some little dew drops in light brown and put them in the center of each flower...

Please be sure to stop by the OCC and check out the other DT cards, they are really super this week!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!



  1. What a great project...this is beautiful, Cindy!!

  2. Very pretty - Cindy!!! I love this flower Set too and you showed it of wonderfully with this color combo!!! Hugs ~S~

  3. Very cool card, Cindy. I love that it is a cocoa packet holder. Thanks for the link. I just may make a few for friends around the holidays! Love your design and the great use of the colors in the challenge.

    Have to admit that I have no idea what a cut file is. I haven't gotten into the electronic cutters yet. I'm still joined at the hip to my Cuttlebug and Spellbinders LOL!
