…Take A Rest

OCLDT39

Happy Monday, everyone!  I’m here with Friday’s Our Craft Lounge DT Challenge #39 over at the OCL Blog for today’s post!  I’m loving the sketches these fabulous ladies bring us each week, but I had to make the focal panel crooked on my card to get it to look right.  I fell in love with the bushels of apples from the “Bountiful Harvest” set!  I stamped the images in Black Ink and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers.  I paired the colored focal panel with some patterned papers from several paper pads, then cut out the focal panel using a Nesties Die.  I added some Black Crinkled Ribbon/Seam Binding that I recently purchased from the Etsy store, which was made by Flirtdeux (aka Sharon Britt).  I finished the ribbon off with a Jenni Bowlin Button and some Copper Cording.  After adding some Piercing, Stitching, Pearls, and several Dimensionals the card was complete!

That’s it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to head over to the Our Craft Lounge Blog for the complete rules and prize information.  I’ll see you back here tomorrow with another Tuesday Sketch Challenge, so until then…
