Hi everyone, I am making a post today for the Some Odd Girl challenge. You are to use at least 5 elements from the list: And challenge #6 for ribbon and rub-ons.

stitching (real or faux)                  oval                              green ( a little or alot)
orange ( a little or alot)                 diecuts                        inked edges
masking or paper piecing               distressing                 ribbon 
embossing                                                                           lace

If you are paying attention, the first letter of each item spells "some odd girl"! I really tried to use them all but I've never done masking or paper piecing so I avoided those items! However, I was successful with incorporating everything else.  I hope you enjoy the card as this is my first easel card! I really like how it turned out. 

Recollections cardstock                     diecuts - cricut storybook cartridge, making memories
DCWV The butterflies stack              distressing- Tim Holtz peeled paint distress ink and scissors           
Stickles                                                 butterfly - Making Memories
MS border punch                                  rub-ons -by Royal & Langnickel (Fairy ABC's)
lace (Hobby Lobby)
ribbon (Michael's)

I really had alot of fun with this challenge as it made me think outside the box. I first started with a sketch but somewhere that went out the window, lol.
