O is for Oval challenge

I really like the alphabet challenges!! This weeks can be found here.
This one was about ovals, so I used a premade card base in chocolate, and cut two ovals from the plantin school book cart, 3" and 3 3/4" and i took pinking shears to the bigger one for a scalloped effect. This works just fine, but im still wishing I would have bough a few sets of nesties the other day they are 30% off at hobby lobby this week, AND they had a ton of them on clearance for just 14.99 a set.
The happy birthday stamp is from a studio G clear set that I got at joann's, ribbon was found in the scrapbooking section of hobby lobby, and the owl stamp is one my favorites in my collection and came from M's a long time ago i think.
I haven't had much time to scrap this week, so this was just simple. At least i feel like I got something done! I dont feel bad, but im sort of in a funk.
Studio G is getting ready to release their halloween stamps, and they are adorable looking, and REALLY affordable!
Also, in case you didn't know Joann Fabrics and Crafts is having a big founder's day sale, most of the a2 size cuttlebug embossing folders are just 2.99, and they have great deals on their paper, and other supplies too!! They carry the bazzil swiss dot that I am always going on about, and a package of 60 pieces ( 2 of 30 diff colors) is just 11.99. Item number is 2388999 for the 8.5 by 11 and I don't know about the 12 by 12, it's rare i buy that size unless I absolutely need too. All of their brads and scrapbook embellishments are on sale too, also order over 50.00 ship free with the promotion code AP227. Your vip discount wont work, but you'll probably save more with free shipping! I ordered twelve embossing folders, paper, brads, and maybe a few other things, but I don't know how long the sale is going on so hurry!!
Thanks so much for looking!!
All comments appreciated!!
