World Card Making Day!


WCDinvite

Welcome to my stop on the Operation Write Home blog hop for World Card Making Day! Our goal for this hop is to make a thank you card using one of the OWH sketches. To get back to the main page, all you need to do is click on the picture above.

For my card, I chose OWH sketch 122. The white/brown paper didn't have a company name on it, but I do know I got it last year on sale to use this year for winter/holiday cards. The dark purple is Bazzill and the white is SU Whisper White. I embossed the two thin stripes with the Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder. The brads are from The Paper Studio. The Inkadinkado sentiment is stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black.

 
I hope you're finding lots of inspiration along the hop!
