OWH Sketch #197


Here's my take on this week's OWH Sketch #197 found here. I omitted an extra layer here and there to keep this card mailable, but I followed the basic sketch.
This great image was stamped and die cut at a friend's house, so I don't know the manufacturer's name, or the die name, but I think it makes a great masculine card. I used a piece of mesh for the bottom panel, along with DCWV dsp. The anchor was cut from gold mirror cardstock with a Marianne die and I wove a snippet of twine through just for fun.

With the use of a snippet, I'm taking this over to the Snippet Playground #97.

And here is Heidi's November calendar page. (click to enlarge) I just love how she colored those cute mooses (meeces? moosi?) and I love the quilt pattern too! Cute, cute cute!!! Thanks Heidi, I'm just loving that I have a new calendar to enjoy each month of the year!

Thanks for stopping by and I do wish you all a wonderful day!

Well it looks like we both had cards in mind for guys (both big and small) today. I love that image and your coloring is beautiful. The anchor is a fabulous touch in that lovely gold mirror paper. Love the papers and the mesh is the perfect addition.
Heidi's calendar page is adorable. Love those moose(s). That quilt is lovely and the maple leaf in the center of the quilt - sweet. Heidi you are incredible. Talk to you later on, Carol. Take Care

Wow, fabulous card! I love the image set off so perfectly by the anchor and the mesh - which looks just like a fishing net (I guess you already know that though). Perfect!

Hugs, Di xx
