S & S Midweek Challenge

It is another Wednesday and that means a Stars & Stamps Challenge from Operation Write Home. This week the challenge is to create a card using patterned paper and a punch and/or die. Patterned paper is one of my favorite things in the world of crafting so this was fun. The sketch used is OWH # 80 and this card will also be entered into the Shopping Our Stash challenge: create a card from a sketch!

I turned the sketch on the side and changed up the measurements a little.
All DP is from a K&Co. paper pad by Tim Coffey, green background from my garage sale grab bag, cardstock is Bazzill. The rectangle 'picture' was cut using a Spellbinders die on my Cuttlebug. The small, round paperclip-type embellishment is one of dozens I purchased years ago. I should really use these more often!

Great how you used the image on the paper for your focal point in this card design. The OWH sketches are such a great resource too. I need to use them more often.

Cindyann - This is a great card! I love how you matted each layer with orange. Such a great fall card! The DP you used are great as well. Thanks for joining us at SOS this week!
