Authentique and Operation Write Home


Sunday morning - time to kick start your creativity for the week with the weekly sketch on Operation Write Home's card blog - Stars and Stamps.

Of course mine take is a little different - I used the same size strip as the sentiment because I already had that mat strip cut and did not want to waste it.

The paper is from Authentique - a new paper pad I got yesterday - It is so great because the paper is double sided so you always have the solids to work with also.  It makes your paper pad more versatile because you have coordinating solids to use on your cards.  The stamp is one I got in a dollar bin somewhere but it works fine - wouldn't it be fun if you had a paper that had million dollar bills on it that you could use with the sentiment.

Enjoy your day - it is suppose to be cooler here today so I can open up the house and get some fresh air in the house and maybe get some work done outside.

Wonderful card! I love how you turned the sketch on the side. I recently bought that paper, but haven't used it yet. I agree, I love the solid designs on the backside of the patterned ones.
