ODB Designs July Challenge

Today's card was inspired by this month's Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge. The challenge was to think "cool" and use colors from the cool side of the color wheel.  I thought of these decorative papers from Papertrey Ink right away, and decided to add an additional cool factor to the card by combining a phrase from this century ("LOL" from Scrappy Moms) with a character from the last century (Charlie Chaplin by Stampers Best).

I layered with "New Leaf" from PTI, and added some interest with a precious bit of blue chevron May Arts ribbon that I received from Sandy as an OWH prize (THANKS!). The brad is from SU! It's hard to see in the photo, but I backed everything with a white card base. Here's a second version with a different sentiment from Scrappy Moms. 

I hope you can link up a cool card to this challenge, as Our Daily Bread Designs will cover shipping on a box of OWH cards for every 25 cardmakers that play!

Thanks for stopping by to take a look! Stay cool, people! :)

  1. Your DP choices are perfect for the challenge. I have seen this Charlie Chaplin image before.
    It is perfect with the 'LOL' and 'Smile' sentiments ;)

  2. The LOL card actually made me chuckle out loud. Way cute! I like the twill tabs a lot too. Thanks for playing in the ODBD Challenge this month!

  3. Very cute! I just purchased this stamp and can't wait to ink it that you changed up the sentiment.
