OCC Flower Friendship

Good Morning!
I hope you are all having a good weekend. I know that it is unusual for me to post on Sunday; but yesterday was such a crazy day that I didn't have time to post my card for the OCC challenge. We had to take Reagan and Tyler to the doctor for their school physicals and checkups. I spent the whole morning telling them that they wouldn't be needing any shots, and that it was just a check up. Well, guess what? Reagan was missing a vaccination, so she had to have a shot; and Tyler had to have a lead screening, so he had to have blood taken. I felt like such a bad mom! Oh, well we went to Dunkin Donuts afterwords and watched a movie when we got home and soon the day got much better.
If you remember from Friday I didn't do the WSC challenge because I was hoping that I could combine that one with the OCC challenge; but since the OCC was a sketch challenge that didn't quite work out that way. I knew that when I started the card I really wanted to use the shaving cream technique, therefore I had to base my card around the reinkers I had. I decided to use Regal Rose, So Saffron and Certainly Celery. I chose Orchid Opulance as my base and complimentary color. The Shaving cream piece is the the one behind the flower. That is such a fun technique and if you haven't tried it, I encourage you do to so. The flower is from Pick a Petal and the sentiment is from Hero Arts "Everyday Sayings" I added the white lines and dots around the top saffron piece to tie in with the white on the petal pieces.
Anyhow, that's all for me today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and I'll see you tomorrow for Mojo Monday!
