OWH Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop

OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop
Welcome to My Blog!
Our Challenge: Thank You Cards Using a OWH Sketch
I am sharing two thank you cards for you today! Card number one is sketch 167( a favorite of mine) I used some paper from Making Memories/ Children At Play. A 'thanks' die from Memory Box. The circle is die cut out, then the panel is popped up, placed  double banners and added a bit bling. The corners are rounded only on side.  The stamped sentiment is from Stampendous.

The second card (sketch # 23) took on CAS / graphic approach with Red with and blue theme. I used a sentiment from CAS-UAL Friday Stamp Line/ Bold Wishes. The star is die cut out from Spellbinders.  Paper is from Papertrey Ink.
Every Sunday the ladies post a new sketch with an inspiration card. It so much fun to play along we learn something new every week from each other! I hope to see you there :) Leave me a comment it is always nice to hear from you!
Happy Crafting
Barbara
