OWH Stars & Stamps Midweek Throwdown Challenge

Good afternoon,

I really enjoyed seeing all the wonderful cards with this past Sunday's sketch challenge.   Our Hero's will love getting all of them.

This challenge is to use the colors green, blue and kraft or tan making our Hero's cards.

I thought I would participate in today's challenge using a new set of stamps that I purchased from SU.  While I was looking around in my stash of stuff to make the card for today's challenge -- low and behold I found a set of stamps I purchased at the Salvation Army in Idaho about 4 years ago.  The stamps have a date of 1997 --   I liked them but never really used them -- wasn't sure what to do with them as they are very long.  Once I saw them today  -- I thought, "these would work with this Sunday's sketch".    So I made three cards using 3 of the 4 stamps for this challenge.  Then  I  made another card with my new SU stamps.

For all the cards -- the DP is from SU, the two sentiments stamped on the blue are from Hero Arts, all other stamps and sentiments are from SU

Hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week.  Thanks to all of you for stopping in.

All three cards are really cute and I love the papers and the different layouts. I also like the little touches of color you added to the stamps on the first three cards. Subtle and very nice. Thanks for playing our Midweek
Throwdown Challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps!

All terrific cards. You really showcase how many things you can do with one sketch and three colors. Wonderful job on all of these cards.

Great use of those vertical stamps! Glad you found them as it gives me inspiration to use some similar stamps I haven't used yet.
