OWH Sunday Sketch

Trying to get caught up on everything after being gone this week at college orientation.  My oldest leaves in August to start her collegiate career ... sigh .... they grow up so fast.

Here's my take on this week's Operation Write Home Sunday Sketch

I misjudged the length of the sentiment so the circle actually had to be put off the edge of the card and trimmed but it still fits the bill.

I colored the flower with R83, R85, R89 and YG97.  I also got some new self adhesive half back pearls form SU! so I added an itty bitty one to the flower center.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. When I saw the cut in your circle I thought, Gee, wished I had thought of that! I thought it really gave the card some extra dimension and punch! Great card! Blessings.

  2. Great card, Maureen! I love the tone-on-tone background stamping. Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

  3. I like the circle off the egde and the text over the flower image is nice too. Good work with the OWH sketch!

  4. OH!! The circle off the edge is brilliant!

  5. I love how you tweaked the sketch to fit your sentiment, and the text over the flower looks great!

  6. Sometimes mistakes are really opportunities...if not it is only paper and sometimes when I glues something crooked I have to remind myself. I also like the circle off the edge. Way to make it all work!
