Some Odd Girl Challenge: Not your average card!


Well, did you all enjoy our sneak peeks last week??? It was so busy in Odd Land!  But the stamps are now officially in the store!!!   Super exciting, huh?

It's the first Thursday of the month, and we are ready to bring you another challenge!  This week, we want you to make a card that is not a regular 4.25" x 5.5", left-folding card.  So, make an easel card, or a card in a fun shape - just go wild!  Head over to the SOG blog, because the whole ODD team has some really fun samples!

Since warmer weather usually means more weddings......

For my card, I made the shape from my Label 10 Nesties!  It is such a pretty shape, and I got the idea for the card from the lovely Yvonne's blog!  I used the largest die from the set, along with some PTI White CS, some Apricot Appeal Prints DSP, and some Certainly Celery with an SU Leaves die.
I added some sponging  on the front panel with some Distress ink and a jumbo dauber, and I stuck 3 Martha Stewart pearls to the top. 
The ovals were done with Nesties as well, and the middle panel has Wheat Dew Drop ink sponged on it.  The sentiment is from a Verve set called Wishing You, and was stamped in Basic Grey ink.

I printed the lovely Bride Mae onto PTI White CS, coloured her with Copics, cut her out with a thin white border, and mounted her on with foam dots.  I added some Sakura Glaze pen to her pearls for some sparkle. 

We are so looking forward to all the submissions, and since it is the first challenge of the month, you are required to use an SOG image, in order to be eligible to win the free digis!  Submit your card on the SOG blog, and you have 2 weeks to enter!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
