OWH sketch challenge #61

I love this sketch! I'm sure you, blog friend, probably do not remember, but I used some of this DP in my OWH MWT mother's day card challenge a couple of weeks ago. I have a slight scrap paper problem *coughcoughcough* and I really wanted to use the rest of the paper in another project, I just didn't have any ideas for a project! As it turns out, my scrap was the perfect size for this sketch. Papercrafting serendipity. :)

Anyhow, here is the sketch and my card:

Embossing: Cuttlebug divine swirls folder
Stamp sentiment: Unity Stamp Co
Ribbon: American Crafts
Paper: background is SU barely banana, the rest is scraps
Punches: EK success circle and SU scallop
Button from my button jar

The pink matted area is popped up on dimensionals, too! Here's a GREAT tip from my friend, Pam, who first introduced me to OWH (serendipitious, again!): you can use the negative area on your dimensional sheets! Now when I buy them, I use the circles first and then I cut apart the rest of the dimensional sheets bit by bit and use them as well! No waste, and nobody knows!

I just offered to make my sister a bunch of cards for her greeting card stash and I KNOW I will be using this sketch several times! Want to give it a try? Go here and join in!


  1. Very nice card. I like the way you brought out the blue with the blue in your embellishment. I haven't attempted eimensionals yet -- aftern seeing your card and your tid bit of info -- I might try. Thanks for sharing.

  2. ... beautiful card. Love paper, it's perfect for this card. thanks for sharing ~ Pam

  3. Great card. The embossed paper brings a nice added touch to the overall card. colors are very spring-like. Nice job.

  4. Very pretty card, Jen! I love the button on the scalloped circle like a flower, too cute. Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge!

  5. Pretty spring colors. The embellishment flower is great. Thanks for the tip about the dimensional paper.

  6. Lovely card, love the blue pulled in. I saw that tip about using negatives on utube somewhere...
