"Missing" OWH Sketch 34 & More DYST Distressing..



I love this sentiment from E.T's blog (see link below) and it just "fit" with missing Sketch Challenge 34 for Operation Write Home. I must admit I never realized 34 went missing but then a lot slides by me these days. And today really wasn't a "blue Monday" but I thought loved this message for OWH and the color blue so it just seemed like a good fit.

This card is also being submitted for the second challenge on DYST to create a distressed card. I ran CORE cardstock through the Sizzix with a Tim Holtz distressed wood embossing folder and then sanded it down and distressed the edges of the circle and card base with peacock blue pigment ink.

  9. Great way to distress on the embossing! The torn edge really 'makes' the card. Good job.
