Two for OWH

Two cards (among many more) made for Operation Write Home Challenges. Our Daily Bread Designs August Challenge is a "Masculine" card. I had just pulled several more masculine type papers when I read about this challenge. By submitting a (one only) card to this challenge you can help defray the cost of shipping the OWH cards to our troops.

The other card is for this week's OWH Sketch Challenge. I flip flopped the two accent strips and didn't mat the one and I added a sentiment. But the sketch is supposed to be a starting point, right? 

Both cards used die cuts from Cricut cartridges "George" and "Beyond Birthdays". I like to make my die cuts out of self adhesive vinyl in black or dark green. The papers and brads were from my stash drawer of scraps and opened packs.

Both cards are great, and I know the recipients will be grateful that you took the time to make these for OWH :)

Great papers on both! Really like how the sentiment pops on the second card. TFS!!!
