Kite Flyin' - Some Odd Girl July Challenge

Hiya!  Sorry this is late!  We've been working this weekend and just got back and for some reason I thought the 1st of July was tomorrow!  Oops.

Our trip this weekend was a relatively easy one... six guests, lots of wind, two anchorages, one dinner, one breakfast, two lunches, one cut finger, no burns, lots of snacks, one set of white sheets covered in make-up, no major dramas.

So, are you ready for another fun Some Odd Girl challenge!  We had some awesome entries into our colour challenge last month!  This month we have a sketch challenge for you!  I used Kite Flyin' Mae... one of my fave Odd Girlies!




















Can you work out what the sketch is supposed to look like?  Probably not, so here it is:





















It looks CAS, but it doesn't have to be... you can embellish to your heart's content!  Check our my teamies' fab cards... we have all interpreted the sketch slightly differently.  Here are a few more pics of my card... Can you tell I'm not a big fan of rectangular cards?  I always tend to make square ones...










































And a close-up of Mae:





















Here are the copics I used:

















We hope you can join us!  You have the whole month to play along, so break out your Some Odd Girl stamps and get stamping!

This is a faberoony card. I love the pearl swirl, because it rhymes and coz it looks great with Mae, sort of windy. Scrummy colours too.

See you tomorrow. xx
