OWH sketch #173 card challenge

While making a card for the OWH weekly card sketch, I decided to do some paper piecing with some adorable Lawn Fawn stamps. I really started struggling with this card, though. That's what happens when I move out of my comfort zone. I think the card still turned out cute, but now I see how I should have placed items differently.


paper - My Mind's Eye - Blink of an Eye
stamp - Lawn Fawn
sunshine die cuts - Lil' Inker Designs
sentiment die cut - Savvydies.com
Versafine ink

I then felt the need to do another card, this time using a sentiment as the focal point. (Which is definitely more my style.)

stamp - Our Daily Bread Designs
butterfly punch - Stampin Up
border punch - EK Success
brads - from stash
Versafine ink

  1. While both cards came out beautifully, the second one really catches my eye. I tend to make cards with a sentiment focus, too!!

  2. Both cards are very nice. I don't see where you should move anything around on your first card. It looks great to me just the way it is. Love that papers and the touches of blue in your second card. Enjoy your week.
