OWH Bootcamp - Variety is the Spice of Life

Nothing like waiting until the last minute to participate in the OWH May Boot Camp lesson - Variety is the Spice of Life.

Here is my offering:
My variations:
  • 4 colors - shades of black and greys plus the yellow for a pop of color.
  • 4 textures - the black background is a crocodile texture, the yellow is embossed with small loops, the medallion edges are embossed, and the floral paper is flocked. 
  • 2 types of corners, stub and sharp angled.  

I hope I followed the rules correctly!!!

OWH Mid Week Throw Down - Transportation

This week's OWH Mid Week Throw Down challenge is to make a card with a transportation theme, such as a car, bus, truck, plane, etc.  Luck for me, I bought the On The Go Bo Bunny kit this past weekend!!!   I don't usually buy kits, but this one was really cute, and the price was right.  I cut the cards, mounted the fronts on heavier card bases, and added some ribbon, glossy accents, fibers, chipboard, etc.  

Here are a few:

I added birthday sentiments to the insides.
