OWH WCMD Blog Hop!

 
Isn't the modern world full of acronyms? You often have to be "in the know" to understand what they mean, right? Here's what my title means:
OWH=Operation Write Home
WCMD=World Card Making Day
 And you probably know what a "blog hop" is! 

I am so excited to be part of the 2013 OWH WCMD Blog Hop--I can't wait to see the amazing creations for this year! Our task was to use an OWH sketch to create a thank you card.  I chose Sketch #8. I like the two-tone background and circular focal image.
And here is my completed card. All the papers are from Club Scrap's Random Doorways collection (January 2013). For the stamps, I used CS's Tribal (August 2013) circular images unmounted stamps and the greeting wood-mounted stamp from Milestones (December 2008). The perfect circles were cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities dies--love those things!

Here's a close-up of the greeting--a bit blurry (I think my camera focused on the ric rac--also from Random Doorways). 
 
Thanks for taking a look at my blog. Enjoy the rest of the hop, and I hope you are inspired to make some cards for the troops!

  3. That is gorgeous! I had trouble with that sketch; I couldn't make those two diagonal pieces work well for me, but your stitching rocked it! Also love that shimmer!

  4. Who knew you could mix Tribal with Random Doorways? I've always found those diagonal sketches a bit challenging, but yours turned out great.
