OCC Colour challenge

Two blues and a neutral is the challenge this week at OCC. I decided to use the Sugar Nellie stamp Braveheart - but whoops I've lost him, can't find him anywhere. Fortunately when I first got him I stamped one or two images and so used one of these and I coloured him with pastels. I thought this could be a 'male' card so kept away from the frilly and flowery embellishments and used corners from the Cuttlebug vintage corner die. The blue stripe paper is from HOTP and doesn't like cutting with the Martha Stewart punch so I ended up using a whole sheet for the few bits I have on the card and had to cut into a different sheet to decorate the inside of the card.



Materials
HOTP Papers
Sugar Nellie Image - Braveheart
Cuttlebug & Vintage corner die
Derwent Pastels
Ribbon from Poppiecrafts
