S & S Sketch Challenge #66

Welcome to my blog - which is exclusively used to inspire others to create cards to send to our troops overseas through Operation Write Home.   My guess is that you are an OWH stamper too since you have found my blog - so thank you for all you do to be an encouragement to our troops and fellow card makers.

Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #66 looks like this:

And this is my card:

The stars are die cut using my Cuttlebug and Nestabilities and of course I ran the card stock through my Cuttlebug with the stars embossing folder.  I sincerely tried putting a sentiment in the right hand corner but I am afraid that it detracted from the layered star as the focal point so I chose to leave it off.  I'm thinking I might put the sentiment on the inside of the card since it speaks to the theme of the card and I intend to use it as an Any Hero card anyway. 

How about if you help me to decided?  Sentiment on the front or on the inside? 

Happy Stamping and God Bless!


  1. Awesome card, Lisa! Love those stars! And I think it looks better without the sentiment. I make a lot of cards without sentiments! Thanks for playing along in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

  2. What a great sentiment for 'any hero' cards! I think I need to hire you as my sentiment writer :) I'd put in on the inside... I never thought of doing that myself but then you could just add maybe one line of thanks below it, sign it and it would be perfect and ready to go. Great card too!

  3. I like it either way..... but if you put it on the inside.. maybe add three brads to that corner... or not.. they really are GREAT cards!!! love them both. thanks for sharing ~ Pam

  4. Lisa, I absolutely LOVE the boldness of this card with the color combo and the big star! I think I like the sentiment on the inside so it doesn't detract from the star. Just my opinion. :-)
