A note of thanks

OCC2011Nov13Saturday means another challenge at Our Creative Corner, and this week we’re led by the talented Wendy Janson!

Wendy’s given us pumpkins as a theme – either the image or the color – you decide.

I tore a scrap of some older Basic Grey embossed vellum and added a mix of Bo Bunny and Stampington papers.  I inked the circle and rectangle pieces with brushed corduroy distress inks and heat embossed, to tone them down so they’d look better with the vellum.  I used three EK punches (zigzag, scallop, and label), a butterfly from a magazine, and a few brads.  Everything is edged in black soot distress ink.

The layout of the card came from this sketch at Mojo Monday:


I hope you’ll pop on over to the OCC blog and see what Wendy and the rest of the design team have created.  The challenge is open to all and runs through midnight on Friday, November 18th.

Thanks for visiting!
