OWH VCMP #3 and #4

     Morning, everyone!  It is another glorious day here in PA.  Since I have jumped into this card party with both feet, let me continue.  Please visit the OWH, Stars and Stamps Blog for all of the details.

 
     Card 3 was completed before I went to bed last night, but I figured I would save it to join Card 4.  For this challenge, Sandy has asked us on her blog, to create a LOVE card.  There was a twist to use one of the OWH Tutorials.  I used one all the way at the bottom on making your image pop on pattern paper.

     I used a white card base, with a scrap of Wild Asparagus paper that I just love.  I found this pretty rose and flourish stamp on my desk.  They were in a grab bag of stamps I bought at a show, from Inky Antics.  My coloring was done with Copics.  As for the sentiment, I dug into my latest Unity KOM.  I took a premade silk rose, and colored it to match as well as my fake brads from Candi.


     The inside of my card has a great love sentiment from Unity, that I wanted to be sure to share.

 
     Card Four gave me a struggle, as I have not scrapbooked in years, but I found a layout on Page Maps, and decided it would work for a card.  here is my sketch.


     I used a navy base card from AMuse, added lots of scraps from my bin cut into flags and pennants, and added a border punched with an MS border punch.  I added a row of faux stitching and some crystal stars for embellishments.  The "thanks" sentiment is a new Memory Box die, I have wanted to try.  To see the rest of the entries for Card Four, visit Nancy's Blog.

     Plan on my return, later today, when the last three challenges are posted, and I have time to create.  Thanks for stopping by.

You did such a great job on both cards! I love that tangerine rose on the first, and I nearly used the same sketch for my card as your 2nd one! LOL I love all those great banners and punched border! WTG keeping up with these fun challenges!
