I made this card for OWH S&S Sketch #20 challenge and for Don't Worry... Be Scrappi: OWH Memorial Day Weekend Bloghop Challenge by using "Oscar" digi image. I used the background paper that I experimented the Wax Resist Technique. You can see the tutorial video that Sandy presented on her blog HERE. I printed the sentiment from my computer. I thought it would be well received by Any Heros' family. I got an idea about it from Sandy's blog, too, HERE.
I made another card with the same sketch for OWH S&S Color Challenge: Pot of Gold. The challenge is to use gold on your card without using any kind of glitter products. I added gold metalic embossed corners on this card. I cut out the gold metal square and embossed it with Cuttlebug Swiss Dot EF. I think this card can be a nice masculine card.
I made these Pinwheel cards by following the instructions of the Tutorial - Patriotic Pinwheel at the OWH Stars & Stamps Blog. It is fun and easy to play along with and the outcome is great. One thing that I want to mention is that I ran the base paper of Pinwheel through the XYRON 500 so that I can just attach each strip on to it easily.
Thanks to everyone who visited my blog over the Memorial Day Weekend Bloghop May 29, 2010 and left kind comments. As I offered my surprise blog candy, I asked my husband to randomly pick 3 winners (I am still old fashioned.) out of 94 commenters.
