Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge # 155

This weeks Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge #155 took a while to make since my poor craft room flooded over the weekend!  We just bought our house in August, so we are in shock.  I had to pack up all my goodies :( but managed to stash enough stuff in the dining room to make some cards.  Cards must be made, no matter what!  We just found black mold hiding behind the wall, so I better get comfortable in my new place while we remove and rebuild the basement.

I had a hard time deciding on what colors to incorporate into this challenge.  I love the cute print I used, unfortunately it was a loose piece I had picked up along the way at Michaels, so it didn't have coordinating colors...  This is what I came up with.

I used  Ashlyn's Alphabet on the cricut for the ovals, and Juli's Garden Cuttlebug folder for the embossing.  Thanks for looking.


  1. I love the colors on this card. Very Mod!(channeling the 1960's here) I like the embossed background too.

  2. Very nice...Love the embossing and the purple and red go so well together. Sorry to hear about the water problems...

  3. What pretty cards Diane, and such a pretty embossing folder. Love the colors and pattern of the DSP, and you matched the cardstock so well with what you had on hand. You've taught me a great lesson that I can create wonderful things with what I have on hand. Thanks so much for playing.

    So sorry about your flooded basement, and so glad you got to stash some stuff upstairs.

  4. OMG! You deserve a prize. I can't believe you still managed to make cards after the flooding. Nothing like a positive attitude.
