Artist With The Blues

Well, well, here I am again - This time, to tell you about a new challenge, starting today, at Open Minded Crafting. How about a challenge about work? Your job, hubby's job, a friend's job - Or anyone else.  We want to see your projects featuring someone at work, or using an office related product on your project - Either will work for this fun challenge.

As always, this is a biweekly challenge, so you have an entire two weeks to create and link up with us, for your chance to win. We always have lots of great prizes you can win and this time is no exception! Join us, this time, for your chance to win a prize from one of these amazingly generous sponsors:

Now that the details of the challenge are out of the way, let me tell you about my card.

My project uses the (new to me)  image, Crafty Honey Painter, from Scrapper's Delights. I went with a monochromatic color scheme this time, and used lots of spots and dots.  This was such a fun project to do, but I definitely felt a bit dotty after completing it! LOL! I kept it simple, with no embellishments, for that reason. All papers used are from my stash.

This card reminds me so much of my school days, because I always looked forward to going back to school, for the art classes! I guess I always loved to be creative and play with paper! LOL

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
