S&S Midweek Challenge

Today the Operation Write Home peeps are challenged to make Cards of Encouragement. Since the sentiment I used would encourage me if I received this card in the mail, I decided it would work.
My husband chose the designer paper pad called "Kraft Funday" by My Mind's Eye. Probably would not have been my choice, but I have made a few cards using these masculine, heavy designer papers and I like the look. The gold CS is Bazzill, colored DP from a paper pad "Max and Whiskers" by BasicGrey, the embossing folder by Cuttlebug, circle dies are Spellbinders, the bling by Mark Richards, and the digital sentiment from Create with TLC. The embossed aluminum paper is the insert from a flavored coffee package. The colors are brighter in person!

Very nice card. Love the sentiment also. Cool papers.

I really like those papers. And how cool and clever of you to emboss that coffee liner! I NEVER would've thought of that, but it's the perfect touch!

Jan Hunnicutt said...

What a great card, I like your husbands choice of papers for you too!

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