ODBD July- Cool Colors

Yolanda posted July's ODBD challenge today and I looked down and saw exactly what I was going to use.  I happened to have a little stack of cardstock scraps in just the colors we needed to use for the challenge.  I whipped them up into a ruffle card and added a digi sentiment I created a while back.  The ribbon was a perfect match- what serendipity!
Please take some time this month to make a card with cool colors (any greens, blues, or purples in any combination) and link up to the challenge found here.  When we get 25 cardmakers to link a card, ODBD donates shipping fees for one box of cards.  At 50 cards, they donate shipping for a second box.  We've made it to 50 each month, but a couple of months have been cut close.  As it's summer now, lots of people are spending less time indoors crafting, so we need all the help we can get!  Oh, and two posters get a $25 gift certificate, too.  Thanks ODBD!
