OWH Midweek Throwdown Card Challenge
Happy May Day!!! We're having a super lovely sunny one here on South Puget Sound!
Wow, somehow I managed to sleep for nearly two days straight! I suspect it was partly the post-oral surgery drugs, and partly catching up on all the hours of sleep I missed while finishing Castaway Cove and Christmas in Shelter Bay back to back.
Today's Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown challenge was to create a thank you card for a deployed service man or woman to send back home. I'm always up for an excuse to use polka dots (they just make me happy!) and believe the image and color makes this card pretty gender neutral.
I'm still playing with my photo lightbox, so the brads may look a brighter blue than they actually are because the light seemed to focus on them, but they're actually pretty close to the color of the paper and stamp.
The paper is Echo Park's Dots and Stripes, the stamp ( which I picked up at Stacy's Scrap Shack in Lincoln City, Oregon while visiting our beloved coast), was inked with Memento Nautical Blue, the sentiment was from my computer, and the brads from stock. The banner actually does have a border on the bottom, but the angle I took the photo from isn't showing it. (I think I'm still a bit blurry from the wonders of pharmaceuticals, lol!)
Thanks for visiting! I read and love to receive all comments. Friday I'll have a new photo, hopefully more cards on Sunday, then Tuesday there'll be a new book excerpt teaser!
