May Challenge and Darling Divas Release High Hopes stamps

Welcome back OCS Fans;

As  today is May 1st, OCS has a brand new challenge, which is “Anything Goes”.  With this new challenge, High Hopes Stamps has a new release called “Darling Divas”.  For today’s card I have used the adorable stamp called “Apple”.

I used the Joy Crafts Cutting, Embossing & Embroidery Die # 6002/1204 for the sides.  I stitched them using a pink and green Sulky thread.  I also added some Versa Magic chalk — Aloe Vera and Pixie Dust to the embossed areas of the die.

Hi All;

It’s another cold day, even though April is almost over. Wish it would get warmer, so that we can actually enjoy Spring and all the new beginnings that it brings.  For my card today for OCS, I have used Princess Tales designed by Elisabeth Bell for Belles ‘n Whistles.
