Crate Paper, Hero Arts and Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge
This is my card based on the weekly sketch on Operation Write Homes card blog - Stars and Stamps.
the sketch called for 3 different strips of paper on the card front. I always have so many troubles making sure everything is lined up correctly that I do the cheater version. One piece and a matted piece down the middle gives basically the same look and I did not sweat getting everything straight. I really like how the colors and paper came together - now I wish I had big sheets of this paper - I only had the 6 x 6 pad. The paper is by Crate Paper, Sentiment is by Hero Arts and ribbon is by Offray. The pearls are from the Dollar Store in Canada - thank you Ivanka.
Cindy was talking about distressing - so I got out my Tonic distresser and stressed up the edges of all the paper. It gives it a very cool finish.
Everyone have a wonderful day - Packers this afternoon and the Brewers tonight - I hope the Brewers pull off two wins since they are home so they can go to the World Series.
