OCC Challenge

This another challenge I have been watching for some time. The ladies over at Our Creative Corner put out a different challenge each week. Sometimes it's sketch, or using a certain element, you just never know. So, I like that.

I wish I could say I am loving my first card for them. This is what happens when you are bound and determined to use up scraps. I had started this card base with Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise and a strip of Pumpkin Pie. I had already inked the bottom half with my Whimsy roller, so that determined the tone of the card. I didn't like any of the images I had with this oval and color scheme, so I went with this sentiment from Happy Harmony. The bright spot, I don't think I've ever made a card with the sentiment as the focal point, so it's something new. The leaves around the oval are from Season of Friendship.

Kristina has posted a new challenge, so I hope to work on that today and have it posted sometime before my head hits the pillow. Until then.....have a great day!
