Happy Everything

The June mid-month throwdown over at Operation Write Home is to make a card with a banner. This wasn't a problem at all since I love banners on my cards! I used a set of Clearly Inspired clear stamps I recently bought at a crafty yard sale to make the banner. The set was so old it was very sticky and one of the stamps tore in half when I took it off the block. Thank goodness I'd already stamped it!

The inks for this are all SU: Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant and Pumpkin Pie.  The sentiment is by Paper Smooches and I added a little bling from Triveni. I made sure when I attached the banner that the card would still fit in an A2 envelope. The idea for this came from Pinterest.

ODBD Miss You

It's been awhile since I've done a card for this challenge, but I'm doing my best to Finish Strong for Operation Write Home. The June ODBD challenge is to make a miss you card. For this one, I used some scraps of striped paper for the stars along with basic black and white. The bling is Triveni and in two different sizes. The sentiment is Hot Off the Press stamped in VersaMark Onyx Black. I CASE'd this card idea from here.
