OCC - Black, White and Texture!!

Hello and happy Saturday!!
I'm sad to say this will be my last post as a designer for Our Creative Corner! I have really enjoyed being a part of this team but I'm finding it just too difficult to fit everything into my already over-taxed schedule and something had to give! So, after 14 months with these wonderful people I have chosen to move on!! I sincerely hope I'll still find time to occasionally play along though!!!

Now onto today's AWESOME challenge, which was another of Loretta Lock's FABULOUS ideas!!

Sometimes, texture speaks louder than colour. Your challenge is to make a
black and white card with lots of texture. And as a bonus, use text as your focal image rather than a coloured image…

...I obviously do NOT get the bonus...hehehe!

Please join us this week by leaving a link to your creation back at the Our Creative Corner blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and another HUGE THANKS to all the wonderful ladies at the OCC for being such wonderful inspiration every week!


  1. Wow, your card really stands out among all the rest this week, Joycelyn! I like how you used so much more white than black. And the combo of the gingham button and dotted ribbon is fab! You totally ROCKED your last OCC challenge!

    So sad to see you leave us and wish you all the best! I've really enjoyed designing along side you the past few months!


  2. Hey, married lady, I love the name change!!! We are going to Edmonton for a wedding in June with 4 kids packed in the van or I'd tell you I'm coming for a celebratory coffee!!!

    I love your card, and I think you deserve the bonus!!!

  3. Joycelyn, this is just beautiful! I love it! I almost went with using that flower also so I'm glad I didn't. I am really going to miss you on OCC. I hope to continue to see you in the blog world though. Take care!

  4. Beautiful card, Joycelyn - you have so many gorgeous textures on there and your big flower is just stunning! Best wishes to you in everything - we'll miss you on the OCC team!

  5. Joycelyn your card is beauitful! LOVE the flower and the stunning design around it!

    Thanks for being a part of the OCC, we look forward to more of your amazing designs outside of the OCC!

    Have a fun weekend ~ Jennifer :)
