My July OCS...



Here is the card that I created for Gail, my OCS partner. The challenge this month was to create a card with words as the focal point. At first I thought it would be easy, but after sitting down to work on my card, I found it kind of hard. I tried to keep it simple so that the words would stand out. I decided to make a little shaker window for the words which are from the Occasional Quotes stamp set. I also tried to incorporate Gail's favorite SU colors: Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, & Old Olive. I was also dying to use some of the new SU embellies like the Paper Daisies and Basic Pearls so of course I just needed to add some to the card. Below is a picture of the inside of the card.
