At first I didn't think I was going to be able to do this week's Operation Write Home sketch #144 challenge, because I woke up at five this morning thinking about business stuff I have to deal with Monday (if New York City is even open!), which had my muse taking off to some undisclosed location. This one was especially tricky because it called for an embellishment. As a rule, my cards tend more toward CAS and I don't do much layering. Although now, writing this, I realized I could've -- duh -- just used a sentiment.
Anyway, finally the brain cloud cleared a bit and I had an idea.
Here's the sketch:
And here's the card:
The sticker, which I backed on DCWV cardstock, is from Penny Black, the papers and the paper bow are from two different BoBunny 6x6 pads, and the metal brad is from my stash.
Since there's still time to make Thanksgiving cards for Cards for Hospitalized Kids, I made this one, using OWH sketch #08.
Everything's all from stash and while I don't use a lot of ribbon, I decided to use the narrow rick rack as a border between the two papers and because it echoes the curves in the turkey's tail.
This one and the next are also for the kids.
The darling monster stamp is from Hero Arts, the paper's from Reminisce, the shiny paper brads are Candi's, and inside it reads, Sending You Monster Hugs!
This was easy, since I put it together with a BasicGrey kit. Although I did add goggly eyes after I messed up the snowman's rub-on ones. Mistakes are embellishment opportunities, right? Inside it reads, You're Cool!
