OWH Hero Arts SKIP!!

Hey All!  Have you enjoyed all the beautiful cards along the skip!  Our OWH gals are pretty amazing!  If you are lost or just happened to stumble upon my blog you can visit the beginning by skipping back to the Stars and Stamps blog.

OWH is giving away one of each of the Hero Arts stamp sets, and the 3 winners will be picked from all comments on all the blogs in the skip - the more blogs you comment on, the more entries you have! Winners will be drawn Sunday night!
I love you
Here's my card.  I used the Year Round Sentiments set.  I love this set!  My papers are actually from a Halloween pack I bought at Impress.  Never let the theme of the pack hold you back!  I added some stickles and topped them with glossy accents to add some much needed embellishment to my card as well as a few star brads!

Your next stop on the skip is Sandy at A Colourful World!  I know for certain she has whipped up something amazing for you!


Thanks for skipping by! Have a great weekend!

  38. Samantha,

    Lovely card -- a perfect color combination and nice textures!

    You are so right about not being tied to the theme of the pack. I've used Valentine' paper on baby cards and Halloween ribbons on generic autumn cards.

    Thanks for sharing!
