OWH Sketch challenge 206


Here's one more card I made today for the OWH Sketch challenge #206. I used Echo Park dsp with crumb cake & black. I outlined the circle dies with a fine black marker to define them against the busy background papers, and added 3 tiny punched hearts done with the SU! owl punch. The sentiment is from the SU! well scripted set, and the ribbon is from my LSS.

Thanks for stopping by once again on this busy card making day :) I'm in full Valentine card making mode with the icy weather outside!

Make it a great week ahead!!

Ohhh, I so love your color and paper choices. I really love pink, gray and black together! Great little tip to outline the circles with black marker, really does help to make them stand out. Love your tweak on the sketch, Thanks for playing along and sharing!

I told Donna earlier - but I'm really loving that sketch! You brought it to life with this pretty Valentine card too. Love that touch of gingham ribbon you added!

Stay warm and inside! Sounds like y'all are just a wee bit chilly up that way! Brrrrrr........

My eye was so drawn to your sketch representation. The colors are so vibrant and cohesive. Great use of the OWH Sketch. The bow on top really balances out the design.

Carol, that crumb and black with the red is just stunning. I have always adored the font on that sentiment. You put together a very sweet card. Hope your upcoming week is a fun one. It rained all night a took away a lot of our snow and we didn't even get to make our snowman. Boo hoo! We are in the 50's today and by Wednesday it will be 8 degrees in the morning. Nice today, Brrr for Wednesday.

This is so pretty, Carol! I love all of the details, and the little hearts worked just perfectly as accents to your sentiment.!

Pretty card...Maybe If I sit down and try a valentine's card...I will get back into the mood of card making...I know I am tired of making Christmas cards...so I think the people I missed sending Christmas cards to will get Valentine's card instead of New Year's as I had planned to do...(besides I can make them in Pink...as you know...is my favorite color)...Keep Warm, Carol...

I had to come check this out and see if you really used 9 layers on it. I'm not going to count but it's looking good. It's a great card design. A good way to use up the this's and the that's we all have lying around.

MaryH said...

OK...you're right...this one is definitely YOUR style! I love it. All those fab layers, paper and great layout design. You combine those patterns so well, with all the different shapes. Perfection! Loved both your CAS & this one too. Hugs

Beautiful card Carol, and I'm loving those papers. My favorite thing is the clever way you have the center sentiment half matted with the black. Wow, that caught my eye right away. Thanks for playing!
