OWH Sketch #172 ~ & Mid Week Throwdown ~

It's a brand new week and that means a new sketch challenge from Operation Write Home!

You can find the sentiment here. The papers are Recollections, the crocheted flower is from Close to my Heart and the teal flower/brad are from my stash. I used a Viva Decor Pearl Pen for the yellow dots and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Broken China Distrss ink.
The sentiment is from the new Hero Arts OWH wood mounted stamps (LP279). I unmounted this sentiment and cut it in half to create 2 lines. A great tip I learned from Sandy Allnock! Here is some more great stamp altering advice. The heart paper is from the Recollections - All Girl pad.

 You can find the cute little freebie here. The papers are from Bo Bunny - Camp-A-lot.

 OWH - Mid Week Throwdown Challenge ~ Make your sentiment the focal point
The sentiment can be found here. I used my markers to color random lines across the image and Spellbinders dies to complete the focal point.
 I punched the hearts out of the leftover scrap once I cut the image out.
Don't forget to mark your calendars for the awesome OWH blog hop next weekend. There will be tons of ideas and inspiration waiting for you!! I hope everyone is having a great week!
