Off set focal point

Boy we had a bad storm here yesterday. There were tornados just south of here but we only had the skies dump rain on us like you wouldn't believe. It looked like a river running through my yard and it flooded the one end of mine and the neighbour behind me. I was ready to run for the closet with my dog and purse and hunker down if I had to.

After everything kind of calmed down I got down to business and started on another card to post. This one is for a challenge with a little web group at home that I started. We have been doing a challenge every month while I have been away for the winter and it kind of keeps us in touch.

I am going to name this challenge "Off Set Focal Point" and this is the card that I came up with.

First I gave them a lay out and said the only rule was that they had to have an off set focal point and it could be a rectangle like the sketch or an oval or a square. From there they could do as little or as much as they wanted. They could embelish it anyway at all, as long as they had an off set focal point.

Here is the sketch I sent have sent to them.

Now here is what I came up with. And don't laugh...I am still buttonless but I am getting used to these punched dots now.

Cardstock: SU Melon Mambo, white & scrap of grey?
Inks: SU Melon Mambo & Basic Grey.
Stamps: SU En Francais & Friends Never Fade.
