The challenge this week is "Ovals". I chose to focus on ovals in my die cut behind my "Kimono Bear" image. I love the way that the oval pops from the square scalloped frame. I used very bold design paper from American Crafts and cardstock from PTI. I used lots of color and pattern but accented my image by cutting it out from the background and popping it up from the oval. To give it a little sparkle I added red rhinestones. I feel like I took quite a few chances on this card. I played around with scale, color and pattern. I am pleased by my result. I know whatever image you use from MelJen's will make you pleased with your project as well. I participated in the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge and the Belli Challenge for inspiration.

Make sure you check out all the wonderful creations by the DT using all of this week's new images! You can purchase these fabulous images and others from MelJen's new shop.
