OWH Midweek Throwdown Love You Challenge

Operation Write Home's Midweek Throwdown Challenge is a card with a "Love You" theme.  I recently signed up to get Apron Strings Designs All Year Cheer Card Kit monthly.  It came with some beautiful papers and a wonderful newsletter with some great design ideas.  The inspiration for this card is from the May newsletter.  
I updated the card based on the comments.  Thanks ladies for your expertise!

The beautiful DSP is from the Authentique Blissful Collection.  I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distressed Ink in Tea Dye.  The cardstock is Creative Memories.  The fuzzy flowers are from Creative Charms but I replaced the fat pearl centers with small flat brads (Oriental Trading Company) since this card will be sent to Operation Write Home.  The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Operation Write Home collection.  I look forward to seeing you all on the Memorial Day Blog Hop!

Happy Crafting!

  1. Very pretty! Love those papers. I do have to tell you I found it hard to read your sentiment on the patterned paper; hope you don't mind my saying so!

  2. Terrific work coordinating the colors, patterns, and textures! You've done an amazing job!

  3. Love all that is going on here! Everywhere I look there is something else I missed the first time ;)

  4. Gorgeous card. Great papers and those flowers are unique. But I have to agree with Jen. My first thought when I saw the sentiment was I would have stamped it in black to see it better.

  5. Hi, Donna! Love the way you used the Blissful papers...I love the texture of the Authentique lines! Thanks for leaving the sweet comment on my canning time post at Great Impressions! I see you next week!

  6. Oh gorgeous Donna, love it!

    Thanks for playing in our Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown challenge!

  7. What a great combination of color and textures you've achieved with this card! So much love!!


Thank you so much for your comments. I read and enjoy all of them.
