I decide to use the OCC Challenge this week. Also giving myself a challenge using Almost Amethyst... It's not a fav of mine. If you could have seen me making this card... I had strange facial expressions and took me 2 hours to figure it out! LOL!
Another challenge is I don't have any Oval Nestie's. So I used an oval template to cut my Whisper White out and then used my scallop scissors. That took me a while, but happy with the out come. If you notice I did some paper piercing on the Almost Amethyst DP which has a Harlequin print. I seen this idea in the latest Paper Crafts Magazine. Also my tree has pink beads attached to give more of a "flower bud" effect. This was inspired by a friend of mine Laura which she made a card using smaller beads in clusters of 3 to give an AWESOME effect... so pretty Laura!! (*wink*)
I hope you enjoy! Thanks for reading my bit of humor in making this card... and I always love your visits!!Michelle :)
