OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop!

memdaybloghop_2014

 

Hello friends! Welcome to my stop on this years ginormous OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop! Aren’t you loving all the beautiful red white and blue today?

I know there is a lot to see so I’m keeping my post short and simple.  I used OWH Sketch #175 to create this card!  I think this is a great one for small patterned paper scraps.  That’s what I used here, along with a patriotic heart sticker that has been in my stash forever.  I layered it up with some nice cardstock and stamped a sentiment from the Hero Arts OWH fundraiser set Year Round Sentiments.

    I suspected something and had to go look up the sketch…it was true. That wide band in the middle in the sketch-I really like what you did…it reads as two thin bands. Terrific idea that I am going to use!
