Revisiting OWH Sketch #57 for the 2014 MD Bloghop



Welcome to my blog!  I decided to try something a little different on my card by embossing paper and then using the negative of the anchor diecut (Paper Smooches) as my "image". Sentiment is from Hero Arts and the dp is from A Paper Studio.  Missing You and I Love You cards are the most requested, so I have been trying to increase the number of cards in those sections of my box. 

The link to the start of the hop is HERE.

  1. Love the use of the negative. Sometimes, I think I prefer them over the actual diecut.

  3. The tiny star embossing folder is one I've not seen - really nice embossed design. I love the bold circle and the blue anchor which stand out so nicely against the patterned paper.
