My on line card making group was having some sketch challenge's this weekend since a majority of the women were being snowed in with the storm, luckily all we had here was some freezing rain that turned into just ran, or we would have been doing a lot of shoveling. But that didn't stop me from playing in the challenge.
Our group is also making cards for the military to send home to their families, one of the ladies in our groups daughter was deployed again and we send the cards to her and she distributes the cards to all at the base, so these cards will be heading there.
My first used a tile sticker that I have had in my stash for many years, 4 stickers came on a sheet and I had this last one left so if you have been with me for a while you have seen me use these in the past. We aren't to send anything with glitter so I didn't add any to the wings like I have done before. After I had mounted it onto the card base I realized I forgot to mount the sticker first to card stock, so you can see the paper underneath, hubby said he didn't really notice until I said and thought it looked ok, so I am going with it.
The actual sketch had a ribbon at the bottom but I placed my sentiment there instead.
Wall tile sticker from $ store
Leisure arts - Savor this moment papers
DieVersions - Miss you sentiment cut 3 times and layered
Next I used a outline sticker and colored in the rose with the sakura gel pen that came with the stickers, when I went to use the green I couldn't get it to work at all so I used one of my fine tip sharpie markers to fill in the leaves.
They mentioned the most asked for cards was miss you and Love, so that is what I went with for these two cards.
Sticklers- gold outline stickers, colored w/gel pen and sharpie
Spellbinders - Classic Ovals die
October Afternoon - 5 & Dime paper
Martha Stewart - border punch
We have a feels like temperature of 5 degrees this morning with very light snowflakes falling, hope you have a bit better weather than we are having :)
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and have a wonderful week ahead!
