Final Day of May Arts/OCL Product Share!

Hasn't this week of exchange of products between OCL and May Arts been an amazing week?!  I have loved seeing the different ideas our designers have shared!  I've always been a huge May Arts fan, and I am so grateful for all of the fabulous ribbon that they sent!  I still have yards to use, so you'll be seeing more in the weeks to come!  Remember, we've got an OCL blog hop coming up really soon!

Today's card is for a brand new OCL challenge with a "Lots o' Dots" theme!  I decided to go with a cheeky bird, dotty tree, a button and some rustic burlap string.  This Basic Grey background print caught my eye since the pad was still on my desk from a previous project (I've used it a lot this week!), so I worked the colors of this dotty pattern into the image using Copic markers, adding even more dots for shading.  Finally, I added some "skippy lines and dots" multiliner details to all the edges, so there truly are "lots o' dots" everywhere!
