Catching Up

 Here's my take on the OWH stars and stamps sketch challenge #214. This sketch is perfect to use up some of those strips of dsp you've collected. I pulled out polka dot patterns in colors of pink, gray and black and randomly added them until I ran out of room! The black panel was done with a new SU! ef, the sentiment is by Hero Arts, and the pink satin ribbon is from my stash.
I'm taking this one over to the Snippets Playground #114 too.



The ODBD March challenge for OWH is to make a thank-you card. I liked this one so much I made a 2nd one, using slightly different papers and a different die cut for the sentiment panel. The sentiment is by SU! and I used a Bazzill rust colored card base with coordinating mats, while the dsp came from my over-flowing stash of leftovers.


That's a wrap for today, but thanks for dropping by and make it a great day!

Nice catch up job here Carol. I don't know if I will ever catch up. I LOVE the colors and papers in your first card. This one is stunning. Stately is a word that comes to mind to describe you other two cards. Just grand!!! Enjoy your night.

For sure, I like your cards. There are lots of polka dots...one of my faves. Pretty pink, black and gray color combo, too.

Loving all these dotty papers you've got going on in the 2 cards. Such a different 'feel' to each card with the colorways you selected. #1 is so elegant & chic in style, but #2 feels very warm & folksy. Love'em both. Glad you only got the dusting. No shoveling necessary I hope! TFS & Hugs

All those polka dots! I love them! I thought your stars and stripes take was wonderful and then I saw that you made two more fun polkie dotted cards. So nice! Great die cuts for the greetings. I need to invest in some greeting sized ones to jazz up my cards a bit.
