Well, the house is partially undecorated. Still have the tree and the upstairs. But, isn't the Epiphany celebrated on January 6? That's my

Today's card was inspired by the current OWH Our Daily Bread Design challenge to make an An Any Hero thank you card. So, I thought it fitting to use an ODBD background stamp. :)
The initial results looked promising. But, when I embossed the copper on black, the banner didn't feel substantial enough. So, I added two more layers, with the middle layer also being embossed in copper. And, if I may say, I really feel like this is one striking card.
The photo splits in the top left and bottom right corners are Tim-inspired. I hear his words encouraging us to do the unexpected. Four splits would be expected... two, not so much. :)
I'm also posting this card for the current Cards In Envy challenge to make a card featuring a banner and the current Anything Goes challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog.
Hope the first day back to work was relatively painless.
Went out to lunch with hubby and father-in-law yesterday. Diners at both of the tables around us were talking Oregon-Ohio State Football. Buckeye fans are so excited for this big game! Did you know that Oregon and Ohio State played in the first NCAA Men's Basketball Championship Game in 1939? Turns out Oregon won that one.
Saw the most amazing movie last night. It was the documentary Life Itself about Robert Ebert's life, based on Ebert's memoir of the same title. Wow, what a life, and what a movie! Truly a must for film lovers. Can't wait to read the book and requested it at our local library as soon as the movie ended.
Jan. 1 - Jan. 21
Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
