Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge


Yeah - the sketch challenge on Stars and Stripes (Operation Write Home's card blog) was up early today - and so I got a chance to play - this paper was laying on my table from yesterday so thought I would use it again.  Check Saturday's post if you want to see a very similar card.

The sentiment is a favorite from Hero Arts for my Operation Write Home cards.  A "hello" card can be used for so many things.

Enjoy your Sunday - we are suppose to have snow, freezing rain,sleet and rain starting this afternoon - hopefully as it warms up - the roads will be OK for getting to work tomorrow.  Thanks for stopping by.

So pretty, Barb. The shade of green you chose is just gorgeous when paired with houndstooth. Thanks for sharing!

The butterfly and houndstooth are really nice together. I like your sentiment shape for the bottom section of the sketch. Thanks for the inspiration!

Great take on this sketch Barb! I love the bold green and houndstooth combination and find myself really attracted to Monocrhome designs these days (probably Bootcamp on the brain :) especially ones that are so crisp and clean like this one. Beautiful!
