Our Creative Corner plays with Card Patterns

Here's hoping you all had a wonderful holiday weekend ... we did, some fireworks, grilling and visiting with family. For my card, I am combining the sketch challenge at Card Patterns with the Seasonal Celebration challenge (Make a last minute 4th of July card or project or a Christmas in July card or project) at Our Creative Corner .

I love playing at OCC and when I saw the sketch for Card Patterns on  my friend Carla's blog (by the way, she is now on their design team) I just knew I had to play. I have been wanting to try a longer #10 size card and thought this was the perfect time. I had a package of precut cards and envelopes by DCWV that has a offset fold. Using some of the "yuletide" paper from K&Co along with some red I laid out my design. I added a chipboard oval from the "yuletide" collection to frame my design paper. Don't you just love those cut out poinsettias? I used some of those last year on my Christmas cards, they are from GinaK designs set " A Year of Flowers" which I love.

For the inside, I stamped some more of the poinsettias along with a GKD sentiment from the set "Blessed is the Season". I am happy with how this turned out and can't wait to try some more designs with this size card.
There is still time to play in both of these challenges, so I encourage you to stop by and take a look. The DT from both sites have some great inspiration for you.
