Happy Thursday everyone!! Today I am running you can see. Busy, Busy Busy....Anywho... here is a card that I created for the Our Creative Card Corner Sketch.

OCC Challenge sketch....

This card is super CAS for me....but I really have begun a lot of white on cards. I just think it looks so clean and elegant that way. The cardinal and sentiment is a sneak peak of the Sing For Joy Set from Our Daily Bread Designs.

The trim around the edge of the oval is glittered. The image is colored with copics. The cardinal and pinecones are cut out and propped up on dimensionals.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs: Sing for Joy
Paper: Neenah Solar White CS, Black CS
Accessories: EK Success border punch, Oval nestabilities, paper piercer, red grosgrain ribbon, silver baubles, Cuttlebug Vintage folder

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed today's creation.
