OWH Memorial Day Hop 2012

 

Welcome to our stop on this years Memorial Day Hop!! Our card today--

  I started with sketch #117 from the Stars and Stamps blog. Sentiment is from Basic Grey. Sailboat patterned paper is from the Paper Patch from years & years ago. The small red stars were punched with a fiskars hand punch and glued to the blue pieces. No new pieces of paper were cut to create this card, all paper came from the scrap files. :)

Thanks for stopping by! Since we are supposed to keep the hop posts short & sweet, I'll end by saying if you need more ideas or inspiration, stop back later! Most of the cards I make are done using the OWH sketches. I keep trying to expand my sketch horizions, but keep coming back to OWH. :)
