OCL challenge...sort of

It's a little tweaked, I admit; but I think I can still count it for this week's OCLDT challenge. My oval was a little larger than I had originally anticipated, so I had to move the scalloped piece across the bottom down just a bit. I used "Floral Fantasy", stamping different flowers from the set and then cutting them out and layering them. I used Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Old Olive and So Saffron for my color palette. The red patterned paper is from an old pad of SU Designer Series Paper. I punched 1"circles from Old Olive paper and glued them to the back of the Red Nestie Oval to get the scalloped edge around that. The "Can't Smile Without You" sentiment is from OCL "Say it Big" set which I stamped on Vanilla paper with Chestnut Roan Chalk ink.
So, as I said a bit tweaked; but overall I was pleased with the final result.
I'm off for the day. Have grand ideas and plans for crafting; but not a lot of get up and go to get it done, so we'll see! I hope you all have a wonderful day!
