OWH World Card Making Day


This card was inspired by OWH sketch #188.  Of course I took a creative license on the sketch, but I was really happy with how it turned out.
The paper I used was from Basic Grey called Little Black Dress.  The ironic part is that I feel it is a very masculine card despite the paper pack's name.

Now head on back to Operation Write Home's Stars and Stripes Blog for the next blog in this hop!

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully crafty day!

  7. Love the colors together. Masculine cards with buttons are pretty hard to pull off, and you did it beautifully!

  15. Guess it just goes to show you what you name the papers is not how you use them! Great masculine card.
