OWH Cards


Here's my entry for the OWH midweek throwdown to make an Easter card. I used a pre-colored Melonheadz digi image for this, adding some Studio Calico dsp to match. I matted with some retired Green Galore cardstock, and layered a pre-printed digi circle sentiment, adding a button brad to the center. I did some faux stitching around the edges with a fine black marker. I liked the way this turned out so I made a 2nd card with different paper....


 The only thing I did differently with this one was to add some piercing around the edges, and then added more faux stitching to "connect the dots."


Here's my card for the OWH sketch challenge #208. I used all papers from Authentique "summer" collection, adding a Casual Friday's sentiment from their Calm & Gentle stamp set. The butterflies were done with a Punch-a-Bunch and I added some yellow and aqua gemstone stickers I've been trying to use up. The scalloped border was done with a SNSS die, while the circles were done with SB circle dies.

That's going to do it for me today. It will be a football kind of afternoon here at our house. I rarely watch it, but the Peyton Manning/Tom Brady showdown should be a game worth watching.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Your little bunny card is too cute. Fun image and I like how you did that sentiment. I have just been checking out Easter cards this morning.
Your next card is so cheerful in those wonderful colors. Love it!

I really like all of these, but the colors in your last card are just stunning. My Mojo has taken a short vacation but hopefully I can play along with these challenges this week. It should be a very good football game. It's tough for me because I should be for Pat but I really like Payton so it will be hard for me to choose. Good luck to all, I guess.

All of these are wonderful! Love the bunny and that carrot - and the "stitching"!! Your last card makes me wish Spring was already here - but guess it'll get here soon enough and then on into the scorching summer!
Of course it's a football kind of day here too. Hope that game's not a blow-out either way. I even have the pop corn ready! LOL!!

I love the added touch of butterflies to the sketch card and the yellow and blue colors are yummy! I will be watching the games today too unless they're so lopsided that I leave to make cards!

Love the little butterflies, they add just the right embellishment with that chevron strip paper.

Looks like you also had a nice creative day!!

I know I did, but I have to admit, my OWH card is not nearly as NICE as yours! I really think you nailed it and think it's funny that we both used blue!!

Your little bunny card is also adorable!! Keep up the great work!~!
