OWH winter challenge & WCMD winners!

Hello!

Today's Operation Write Home challenge is to make a winter card that uses a nature element. I was completely predictable and chose snowflakes. :) I won two Itty Bitty's of my choice recently and this was one of my picks - I *adore* it!

Unity Stamp Co sentiment
SU crochet trim
Sizzix snowflake embossing folder
poor attempt at following a sketch... all me!

I'd also like to announce the winners from the OWH World Cardmaking Day Hop this past weekend. Thank you for all of your kind comments!

The paper pads go to:

  2. I, too, was predictable with snowflakes. BUT - they can be used all winter! And I love the blue and brown color combination - make a much needed masculine card. Great job!!!

  4. Hi Jen! Your card is beautiful and elegant. I'm loving these sentiment stamps (Subway art?) that are popping up everywhere. Did you post this at the ODBD sentiment challenge? Great job.

  13. Beautiful card! I love the color combination and I, like others, are sweet on the subway art stamps. Sometimes it's like buying a bunch of sentiments all-in-one when you mask them off too! Thanks for sharing!
