Sunday Sketch #154

Here's the first sketch of 2013!  This is sketch #154, available on the OWH blog.  The new year also meant a change for the OWH Sketch mistress.  Julie is "retiring" and moving on to other things.  Marlene is taking the lead on sketches this year.  The other change is that now the sketches will be created based on cards that are already posted to OWHers blogs.  That's some incentive to make awesome cards and post them!  (Previously, Julie invented the sketches and had volunteers make samples.)

Did you complete all of the 2012 sketches?  Do you have a goal for this year?  I have just a couple left from last year that I haven't completed quite yet.  I'll definitely do all of the sketches this year, too.  They're a fun way to get started if you're stuck with no mojo! 

I used scraps of a variety of TPC Studios papers.  The die cut is a Sizzlit that I almost never use, but it seemed fitting for the central element of this card.  The stamp is from an old SU set. 

Cards shipped to OWH in 2013: 340 blank and 140 AnyHero (as of 1/7/13)

  1. I like bright cheerful cards - and this one is just that! Great die you should use it more often : )

  2. Fun cheerful papers...great card! tfs!!!

  3. That's a sweet card - love the geometric patterns Kathryn! I love the OWH sketches but I'm going to try the Mojo Monday ones this year. Definitely going to do all of this year's OWH sketches as they come, but the MM blog has a lot of fun sketches I'm not familiar with, so I though I'd change it up a bit.

  4. Those are such happy colors! I love your cute birthday card! :)

  5. This is a great card that can be for either adult or child. Fun papers.

  6. What a terrific card Kathryn. Nice bright, cheerful colors that will brighten any day. Great use of a die cut as the center element. Thanks for playing!

  7. That gift package is darling! Love the bright cheery look to the card.

  8. What a fantastic birthday card! Great job with your colors & DP choices!!

  9. Hi Kathryn,

    This is such a fun, happy card. I love your choice of colors -- the oranges and blues work so well together. And, I love the font of the sentiment -- it's perfect for the feel of the paper and die.

    Good luck with your 2013 resolutions. You absolutely rocked your 2012 ones!
