OLYMPIC Challenges at SCS & ***ODBD NEWS***

Here's a fun attempt at combining two SCS challenges. I incorporated the Olympic Rings into this card.

At SCS yesterday, the TLC #TLC261 "It's In The Pieces" challenge was to use PUNCHES as paper pieced art. I punched my birds with a Martha Stewart Punch, ran them through the cuttlebug embossing folders then double layered them and placed them on Circles punched with CM circle punches.

Also at SCS today, the color challenge #CC259, was to incorporate from 1 to 5 of the Olympic colors into our card creations. I dint get too fancy or caught up in this card at all. JUST HAD TONS OF FUN punching and putting it all together.

Here's my playful take:

Stamps: ODBD - You Will Find Refuge
Paper: White, Blue, Black CS
Ink: Black StazOn
Accessories: Spellbinders, Cuttlebug, Gold Brads, CM, Circle Punches, MS Bird Punch
Techniques: Dry Embossing, Scoring
