S&S Sketch Challenge #57 for OWH


I'm trying hard to get out of the doldrums brought on by having recently developed and been diagnosed with Diabetes and one of the best things I know of is to find insiration that takes me back to my craft room. In that endeavor I went to the tried and true project I favor - Operation Write Home's Stars & Stripes Challenge. 
This week I went with the Sketch challenge -S&S Sketch Challenge #57 - that is simple enough, look at the sketch and create whatever my mind finds in my craft room. For some reason I seem to be in a Pink season, so this card came out pink. The card base is A.C Textured cardstock. The solid pink is Bazzill - basic cardstock. The pink paper is Girl Birthday collection - Blossom Stripe by ADORNit and the stamped sentiment is from JustRight Stamps. I used Spellbinders to cut the standard circles as well as the eyelet circle. Of course this card gets added to my box of cards I am putting together to ship to OWH.

Here is the sketch that was provided:


  1. Really cute, Redonna! I love pink year round, myself :) Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

  2. Lovin this! A while back I was looking for a birthday card for a friend's son. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.
