Stampsmith Challenge Blog Ovalicious

Hi Everyone,
I am the hostess for the Third challenge at the Stampsmith Challenge Blog. And that means I got to select the theme. I thought it would be jun to challenge you with a shape theme.
Challenge #3 is to Use one or more ovals on your project.
Here are a few ideas to get you started: oval die cuts, punches, oval shaped stamps, or decorative paper with ovals. You do not have to use Stampsmith Stamps for this challenge. But, if you have them, we would love to see you use them. You can make any type of project from 3-D to cards. You will have until November 14th to complete your project and link it up here. And, of course, there is a fabulous prize. One person will be selected at random for a gift certificate to the Stampsmith Shop. I will also be selecting the three Highlights from this challenge. The winner and Highlights will be announced on November 15th. Well, ladies and gentlemen, get busy and show us your Ovals. Have fun! We can’t wait to see what beauties you come up with.
Fore more inspiration check out the Design Teams' projects. Here is my card.

I used an image from the Audrey Hepburn Full Sheet available at the Stampsmith Shop. Cs: Bermuda Bay from Stampin' Up and glossy white. DP: SEI and K & Company. To make the ribbon ruffle, run hand stitches down the center of the ribbon and pull to gather. I glued it onto the card with Fabri-Tac. Oval Shapes: Spellbinders Beaded Oval small, and Sizzix Frame Scallop Oval. Ink: Tuxedo black from Memento and Bermuda Bay from SU.
Detail shots:

This card is going to a dear Friend who will be turning 50 this month. (Hope she doesn't see this post) So, I added a humorous sentiment from Victorine Originals on the inside.

Hope this inspires you to get out any oval items in your stash and join in on the challenge fun!
