Some Odd Girl Challenge

It's been awhile since I made a card using a Some Odd Girl
image. Their images are just my style - cute and sweet.


I made this card for the Some Odd Girl Challenge. The challenge theme is "Think Spring."

I don't know about you but I am definitely ready for warmer weather and sunshine. I decided to use the Sunny Tia image for my card. She is part of the March 1st release. Isn't she adorable in her orange and green outfit?

I created the background paper by printing the Clock Background from The Cutting Cafe on Kraft paper. I'm glad I decided to print it out on a full sheet of cardstock because it is a lot more versatile than I first thought.

Here's how the card ended up:

I used a circle punch and punched out one of the clock faces to add a little dimension to the background. It's hard to see on the picture but it looks really neat IRL (In real life).
