OWH sketch 136; VCMP challenge - punches

Hey there and happy Sunday! We are headed - after mass - to my parent's house for a cookout with my parents and my brother's family. I hear there will be treasure maps! Grandpa and Grandma are sure ambitious this weekend... the girls are pretty excited. :)

Anyhow, it's time for sketch 136 AND the combined VCMP challenge to use punches, as this sketch is perfect for them.

I again went with the "unknown dp" and had the hardest time finding a coordinating cardstock color, so I layered it with Bazzill's walnut cream. I don't often do light layers, but I do think it works on this card:
SU snowflake punch
unknown dp; bazzill walnut cream
Hero Arts sentiment

I found this SU snowflake punch at a rummage sale this summer for $3. I think it will get a lot of use, and I think I will use this sketch to use up the couple of sheets of this snowflake paper. :)

Thanks for visiting my blog today! :)



  1. Very nice Jen! I like the varied positioning on the snowflakes much better than the straight stack in the sketch and the way you have them overlap the edge adds interest. I don't own this punch but may try a leaf punch instead. Enjoy the rest of the VCMP!

  2. I like the layering with the light color - I think you should make up your unknown paper into htese cards -

  5. Jen,k That snowflake punch is a favorite of mine. Your papers are just lovely and also your sentiment.

  6. Jen...your card is gorgeous. Some cards I lay light and some dark...the light is perfect for this card...really helps pop the sentiment! I wish I had that punch! Thanks!
