Three Cards for Three Challenges

Here's my card entry for the monthly "Our Daily Bread Design" (ODBD) Challenge. The challenge was to use 3 patterns on the same card. If we reach 50 entries ODBD will generously pay shipping costs for 2 large boxes. The deadline is February 4th.




This is for the MWT "Floral Fantasy" Challenge and it uses a sentiment from the new OWH Hero Arts stamps set called Year Round Sentiments. As is the case with all these cards, the papers, ribbons and embellishments are all from a long collected stash that I a determined to use up completely.


Lastly, this one is my interpretation of this week's OWH Sketch Challenge #104. Though I typically try to  stay as close to the original sketch as possible, this time I moved and altered stuff but I think it's still obviously based on the sketch.




Happy Crafting Everyone!

3 great cards - I like your interpretation of the sketch - my sketches always take a different path usually.

thanks for everything you do for OWH.

I just knew you would nail the patterned paper challenge. You are the the queen of that!

Your sketch card is terrific. Your bow placement is a great idea. My card may get a "redo." Moving it over was smart.

Paula, your cards are all terrific! I like the way you modified the sketch 104 card. I think we can stray a bit and still make a sketch card. :) I really, really like your Floral Fantasy card. I have been pondering about a card using that saying, and I think your card is fabulous. I love the big U and the flower and button combo. Thanks for playing in our Midweek Throwdown challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps!

I came here for the Sketch 104 card - but they are all great cards! On the sketch card, I love the soft pink-green-brown colors and patterns, and the raffia bow is a nice natural touch. My favorite though is the bright "missing you" card - such fun patterns, shapes, and ribbon.

You've been a busy crafter to make three cards in one evening! They're all so great! I love the torn panels on the sketch challenge card and the A E I O Missing U is just the cutest card ever!

Oh wow Paula, you nailed all three of these challenges! I love all the DP's you used and how you combined them so perfectly.

"Completely use up" your stash? Wow! If I could only live to be that old...

Beautiful cards, all three. I love the placement of the raffia bow in the last card. It's a nice twist on the sketch.

Paula,

Your cards are gorgeous!

I especially love your floral and butterfly work of art for this week's sketch!

Samantha said...

Love what you did with the sketch! Altering it totally worked!

Your cards are all so very lovely. Nice use of the pp and also the sketch.

Lynn said...

These are all wonderful! I love your take on the sketch and the pop of raspberry color in the squares. This card looks very "alive" (does that make sense?)
