One More Card Today...

Here's the tic-tac-toe grid for this week's OWH mid-week throwdown...
And this is the OWH sketch challenge #163. I've combined both challenges to make this card...

I chose the right column from the grid for my card - ribbon, blue, and embossing. I used a scrap of dsp I've had forever, and dug into my stash for the ribbons. A few punched stars & brads, a sentiment from Unity, a little embossing with a SU! square lattice ef, and this card is now ready for my next OWH box.

This is the last card for today, and again, I thank you for stopping by!
Make it a fabulous day! In a couple hours, I'll be vegging out in front of the tv watching the race from Las Vegas! Go Smoke!

Beautiful card...perfect for both challenges...I think you need a crown or a banner...which reads "The Challenge Queen"

I really like this card. Nice job combining MWT and Sketch. The contrast between the blue & white, as well as the texture, is very appealing. Love the stars as the focal point.

You did great combining the two challenges. The square lattice and the stars look great together. Blue was the icing on the cake.

Hi Carol,

What a lovely card! I especially like the embossing, the little tiny brads inside the stars, and the pairing of the two ribbons.

Great card for the tic tac toe challenge! I wanted to use blue, but couldn't come up with anything to go with the other items on the grid. I still really love that embossing folder, too.

Wendy said...

Terrific card, Carol! Love the colors in your papers, the embossing and all the stars! The sentiment is perfect!

Paper Blessings said...

Such a beautiful card. It looks so yummy with all the textures and yet peaceful with the blues/whites. Thanks so much for sharing and KUDOS on pulling together the two challenges at once!
