OWH Sketch Challenge 119

Hey All!   There's a new sketch challenge up on the Stars and Stamps blog!! Make sure to go play along!
I made the sample for this weeks sketch challenge 119 and thought I'd share what I did.
I love layers!  I think they just really help to make everything pop!  I used my Cuttle Bug to make the stars embossed background.  I used thin dimensionals to pop the camouflage layer and used hemp twine to separate the two pieces.  I popped the circle layer and then added some liquid pearls to match the scallop border on the camouflage layer.  The star is just a Sizzix die that I popped and added the sentiment straight to.  The sentiment is by Verve and came free with one of my recent orders.

Thanks for stopping by!

OWH Sketch Challenge 116

Oh my! I haven't blogged on here since February!  I do apologize to my followers.  Sometimes I just find myself in a deep rut.  No mojo.  No desire to make cards or even sew.  I'm back though.  I made 5 cards in 1 day.  5.  Me.  I'm quite proud and happy to finally have something to share with all of you.

thinking of you
I used this weeks S&S Sketch Challenge 116.  The papers are from a DCWV stack that has been in my stash for way too long.  The image is Daffodil Charlotte by Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps.  I used my Copics to color her and then added a ton of stitching before assembling all the layers.  The sentiment was hard to place so I cut it up like Pam did on her card and it worked!
