OCL challenge day–Clean & Simple

It’s Friday! That means it’s time for a new Our Craft Lounge challenge. Clean & Simple with embossing!  Check out The Lounge for all the details.


I combined a couple of challenges for my OCL card today. Color Challenge 314 which was Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake and Neutral. Free for All 56 which was “How does YOUR garden grow? What makes you thing of a garden and happy springtime??”

Clear embossed Whispy Patterns onto the background. Clear embossed flower from Whispy Blooms and colored with copics. Added Chunky Crystal crafty sparkles to the middle of the flowers. Sentiment is embossed in clear too.

Layout is from Tuesday Morning Sketch #85. And the card is also in the following challenges:

Scrap-Creations - Anything Goes
Pink Elephant - Spring Time
PaperPlay - Embossing
MyGrafico - Anything Goes
Amber's Crafts and Stuff - Anything Goes

I also have a second card for you using OCL images. I made this during the week for the Featured Stamper 214 but never got around to posting it. It is also clean and simple but no embossing. I cased this card of Bridget’s. Changing images but keeping layout the same. I used Bees Knees and colored with copics. Images are attached with Glue Dots. Curved the sentiment more to fit in the space.


Also entered in the following challenges:

PaperCrafting Journey - Up in the Air
MyGrafico - Anything Goes
Amber's Crafts and Stuff - Anything Goes
Scrap-Creations - Anything Goes
Pink Elephant - Spring Time

        Thanks for stopping by!
