OWH sketch #215 card challenge

It's time for the new sketch over on OWH's Stars and Stamps blog. They are up to #215 already. I decided to make a masculine card for the sketch using some fun cowboyish papers from Carta Bella. The sentiment is a modification from a Hero Arts OWH fundraiser set. When I first bought the set, there were 2 stamps that had deep gashes in them. Hero Arts was awesome and replaced the entire set for me. So, I decided to cut the YO out of the YOU are My World stamp for a perfect guy sentiment.

stamp - Hero Arts
Pearl pen - Viva Decor

Here is another card I made using the Carta Bella 6x6 paper pad.

  5. Thanks for trying this sketch, Kristie. Your paper choices, as always, are wonderful. I love the versatility of clear stamps, and your "YO" stamp demonstrates it perfectly! I guess you also have a "U" for text lingo! :)

    1. LOL, I'm not brave at all. Since I received an entirely new set of replacement stamps from Hero Arts, I had 2 of the 'YOU are My World' stamps and only cut up one.

  8. Great idea, Kristie, to cut up the stamp. I love the YO for a guy card. Your second card is just as great. I know some guys will be very happy to receive these two cards. Have a great week ahead.
