Today's card is for the March Our Daily Bread Design challenge at Operation Write Home to make a card featuring a sentiment. Perfect timing for this birthday card. :)

Winnie & Walter big, bold, happy in Distress Ink walnut stain
SU owl-builder punch (for circles)
So, I asked myself how can I pop a sentiment without my go-to heat-embossing trick. And, then I thought of Sandy's recent tip to use contrast. Eureka! I decided to use a much lighter strip of paper behind this really bold sentiment. By George, I think this works!
In addition to linking this up to the ODBD challenge, I'm also going to link it up at Seize the Birthday. This is a new challenge blog to me, and there is currently a masculine theme going on at STB. Sounds like a great fit for this little card.
In case you haven't heard, there is a Unity/OWH blog hop going on to celebrate a new set of Unity patriotic stamps. Please click here to go to the start of the hop. And, our thanks to Unity for their generous support of OWH! I know I can't wait to ink up these new stamps. :)
There's also still time to link up a card for OWH Sketch #249. Last week's sketch comes with a great opportunity to win Doodle Pantry goodies. :)

And, we have an in-like-a-lion-out-like-a-lamb weather-related Words 2 Scrap By challenge. Annie is hosting this month and if offering a $15 gift certificate to Stamps of Life for our winning entry. Hope you will join us.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
