4th of July VCMP - Day 3

It's been a busy last 2 days with the fun Virtual Card Making Party going on over at OWH. Today is the last day, so 6 more challenges to go. I've made a huge dent in the Doodlebug 6x6 paper pad I've been currently using. Although, the colors didn't work for all challenges, so I have had to use other papers once in a while.

The first challenge is the OWH sketch. I always look forward to the new sketches on Sunday.

sketch - OWH sketch #232
paper - Doodlebug - day to day
stamps - Lil Inker Designs
die cuts - Lil Inker Designs
Versafine and Memento ink

The 2nd challenge is by Annette. Her challenge is to make a Thick AnyHero card with a message written inside and then a Thin version for a hero to write in and mail home.

stamps - Lawn Fawn, Paper Smooches, and Simple Stories
embossing folder - Cuttlebug
heart die cuts - American Crafts

Here you can see the thick dimension of my AnyHero card compared to my thin card.

The final challenge of the VCMP is by Cara. Her challenge is to use a faux technique on a card. I chose to use some die cuts that have the faux stitching on them. They are some of my favorite die cuts.
