OCC Challenge - Mother's Day Card - Look Ma! No Flowers!

Welcome OCC friends... Welcome to another fun challenge here at Our Creative Corner!! We want to thank all those that stopped by & played along with our challenges last month. Our April hostess, Dana, did a spectacular job with so many wonderful and creative challenges for us to play along with! Thank-you, Dana!!!

We are happy to announce that the winner of the $30 Paper Maniac gift certificate is #272 Regina Jones. Congratulations Regina! Please email Dana Grothaus to claim your prize. Take a look at Regina's beautiful creation;

Now, onto this week's challenge. We have a new month, and that means a new hostess. Let's welcome our May hostess, Loretta Lock. This week Loretta is challenging all of us to make a Mother’s Day card with no flowers or blossoms. Flower shops will be full of beautiful blooms of many beautiful fragrances and vibrant colours. This will be a card that we can give along with a beautiful bouquet without competing with natural floral beauty! Everyone is invited to play along and we can't wait to see your cards this week!

Please remember there is no time limit on our challenges - participate whenever you are able. To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave us a comment linking to your card/project so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC

Here are some samples from our Design Team to spark your inspiration. Our May hostess will start us off;
