Two sketches on Sunday

Hi everyone!  It's another rainy end to a hot weekend here in the deep South, which means it's OK to stay inside and craft!  I made cards for two different challenges today.
The first challenge is for Freshly Made sketch #92:
This sketch made me think of the American flag, so I made a patriotic card:
I used two embossing folders for each side and the sentiment is Simon Says Stamp, which I embossed in gold.  This will be an Anyhero card to put in my box of cards for Operation Write Home.
My second card is for today's OWH challenge and I love the sketch with all the layers:
The papers are from the June Simon Says Stamp card kit; sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I'm trying to finish the June kit because I just got the July one and I don't want my family to see me with multiple kits open!  Gotta use 'em up!
I was happy to see that we had 50+ cards for the June ODBD challenge!  Great job, everyone!
Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Both cards are amazing. I especially love how you used the FMS sketch... The gold embossing, gold stars and two different embossed backgrounds make this an amazing card! Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. Erica, that owl is adorable the way you have him peeking into the rectangle. Great use of those kit papers!

  3. What fun papers for the owl card! Great job!

  4. That first card is amazing; I'm not sure I could ever pull that sketch off. And the second one is too, too cute! What fun it'll be for the lucky person who receives it!

  5. I love both cards but the second one just strikes me as outstanding!
    Thank you for sharing.

  6. Love the graphic nature of the second card. Too cool!

  7. Both cards are great! I like the color combinations and the image on that 2nd card is adorable :)

  8. wonderful cards- I think your 'thinking of you' card is fabulous-- love the colors and the sweet little owl! wahooo that we once again met the ODBD challenge!!!

  9. I love the partial face peeking out with the thought bubble! What a super cute idea. Those Simon papers are really unique. Will have to check them out! TFS
