OCC Oh the Flowers

Good morning, and Happy Saturday! Today I'm here with the next fun challenge at Our Creative Corner. Our hostess, Kristin, is bringing us some more lovely inspiration from Copenhagen:

The only catch is that you CANNOT include any flowers on your project.

I made a simple and sweet card, drawing my colors from the photo collage above. I also embossed the pink strip with that embossing folder that looks like sticks. Hopefully you can see the texture in my photos. That folder reminded me of the stems of flowers.

The white piece on the bottom with the label shape is a scrap from when I needed a die cut label. I always save my scraps. Actually, now that I think of it, that bird (which I popped up with foam tape) is also a scrap! It's from this card, and apparently has been sitting on my craft table since May!

I sure hope you join us for our challenge this week at Our Creative Corner!

Another card true to form! I LOVE this card! Love how you used the negative space for the bottom of the card and the positive for the bird. It's wonderful! Great job!

Such a sweetly simple card, Jen, and just perfect for this challenge. I really like the colors you matched up and the way your bird just pops off the page!

Hope you are having a great weekend.

I love your card, Jen! What great uses of scraps. I have a ton of scraps and I never use them, LOL. Your bird and frame are so wonderful, and the pink embossed strip is perfect. Fabulous card!
