OWH Be A Rebel Challenge #3 - Food As Your Focal Image


Welcome OWH Card Makers!  Today is National Scrapbooking Day but we are playing the part of the Rebels and we are making CARDS, not scrapbooks, for our deployed heroes.  If you are new to Operation Write Home you can find out all about this wonderful organization by clicking the badge on the left side of this post.


My challenge today, for the Be a Rebel Virtual Card Makiing Party, is to make a card using FOOD AS YOUR FOCAL IMAGE.  It can be any kind of food....cupcakes, candy, ice cream, hotdogs, BBQ...even popsicles.


My card today was made using the adorable Doodle Pantry Popsicle Ants.  I used the colored versions and background papers that are included in the set but the outline images are also available in the set as well (great for paper piecing or coloring on your own.)  I accented the popsicle with Glossy Accents and it looks good enough to lick!  Here is a close up to show the shine a little better.


Of course this wonderful set comes with several other colors that I could not ignore....so I made a card for each color!  All will be included with my next OWH box.  Here is a photo of the others.



Now it's YOUR turn....go make a card (or two or three or four) using FOOD AS YOUR FOCAL IMAGE then link it up here, and share on Facebook, too!

I am sorry to say Mr. Linky doesn't like me :(  Please leave a link to your  blog post in the comment section* and we will  hop on over and leave you some love! 

Happy Stamping!

*Note: to see the cards made by other card makers just highlight their link, copy it, then paste it in your address bar and hit enter.
