Serene Summer Silhouettes

Whew, it was another busy week. It's probably going to stay that way for the next little while, but I'll keep trying to post! Today it's time for my second challenge at Our Creative Corner. For this week I chose this photo of round fabric buttons for inspiration and came up with what I think is a fun challenge.

For my card I kept it pretty clean and simple this week.

I created the background and center strip with images from Summer Silhouettes, and the main image is from Serene Silhouettes. Give me a set with "silhouettes" in the name and I'm all over it, LOL! My colors are Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade, Blushing Bride, white, and black. The sentiment is from Bring on the Cake, and the only non-SU product used was the 2" scalloped circle punch.

I'm outta here for today, but before I go of course I have to remind you to visit the OCC blog to see the rest of the samples from the team. There's a ton of stamping eye candy for you this week! Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
