OCL-IHP Challenge Day (not a Five Minute Friday)

No Five Minute Friday card today because IHP is participating in OCL’s Challenge this week.  The challenge is to find an OCL card anywhere on the web (blogs, SCS, OCL Gallery) and CASE it with a different stamp set.  I decided to CASE Kendra’s card HERE and I recreated it using Tweet Trees.   And because it was Kendra, I HAD to paper piece my tree.  It’s what she would have done.  Trust me.  :)   *wink*

I used a strip of Upsy Daisy’s Majestic paper for the diagonal piece and then paper pieced using bits from BasicGrey’s Pyrus and popped them up with some dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting is Palette Landscape and finished it off with some natural twine thread.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Be sure to check the rest of the IHP girls that are playing along:


And just a reminder, almost all of the older OCL sets are on sale, along with lots of other goodies because I’m trying to clear out space for the recent CHA items that have been arriving almost daily!  I’m expecting the 12 new Sketch Copics  to arrive next week.  Be sure to check Facebook for up to the date notices and sign up for the newsletter on the right side of the homepage so you don’t miss anything!

Have a great weekend!

Beautiful card and such adorable trees. I would much rather have these trees in my yard with their trendy leaves - so much better than the gumballs that are hanging from mine at the moment! =)
