Seems Like It's Been Forever...

Hi, everyone.

Before I get to today's card, I want to thank OWHers for their support of Bobbi and my new challenge blog. Thank you so much for your well wishes and linked cards. Since challenge winners are going to be invited to be guest card makers for future challenges, we are asking that challenge winners be blog followers.

Again, thanks so much for your encouragement as we embark on this new venture. The OWH family is such a wonderful group of card makers.  :)

Today's Any Hero Card

Seems like it's been forever since I've made a traditional Any Hero card. The card below was inspired by OWH Sketch #206.

Bo Bunny Liberty 12 x 12; Bazzill admiral and watermelon
Distress Ink core antique linen, embossed and lightly sanded
Recollections jute; Little Yellow Bicycle Naturals stickers
Paper Studio and Martha Stewart star punches; Recollections brad
Darice embossing folder
various Distress Inks sponged on dp
Creative Memories circle cutting system

The sample card was fabulous. But, truth be told, this sketch was not as CAS-like as I typically like. Neverthelesss, I think this card turned out okay. Layering neutral texture on texture for the side strip helped me simplify things a little.  :)

Parting Thoughts

Stay warm. Stay safe. And, have a good week.

As always, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!


  1. Wow, what a great Hero card or patriotic one too! I so love the use of burlap and you scored a home run using what looks like two pieces. Love the banner effect with the top piece, I'll being CASEing that idea! Thanks for playing and sharing your ideas!

  2. The burlap adds great texture, and I love the corners on the left - great job!!!

  3. I really like what you did with the sketch, Sybrina! The burlap is such a wonderful addition. I have some I need to use and I might just CASE your card in the process. Thanks so much for sharing!

  4. The banner idea was a great one! I like it a lot.

  5. I'm with Cheryl, great Any Hero or patriotic card Sybrina. Love your take with the burlap and banner shape. It adds a lot of texture without being thick. Thanks for playing!

  6. Wow, I don't want to sound like a broken record, but the burlap and banner shape really makes this card unique and a stand-out! You are so creative!
