OWH Challenge Card #70

Our sketch this week features a big curved section! Here's a tip for you if you don't have a tool to cut curves or circles: simply pick out an appropriately sized salad plate or bowl, place it upside down on the back of your paper, trace the curve with a pencil, then cut it out carefully with scissors. Low tech and low cost, and it works just fine.

Here is my take on this sketch. I haven't added a sentiment yet. Sorry for the bad pic, another gloomy day here.

Misty - This card is absolutely beautiful! I love your take on the sketch and think it came out perfect!

Pretty colors and lovely shapes!!!

I also think your tips about cutting the circles with a plate or bowl is prefect! Great TIP !! I used a Cuttlebug die, but I have it admit, it was not exactly the right size and your idea would have worked much better!!

Have a nice day and thanks for sharing this awesome card!!

Misty, Nice take on the sketch this week. Love all of your papers. Your blog looks so pretty with your hummingbirds. I've only seen two in my yard so far this season. Thank you for sharing.
