Operation Write Home Card Bowl 2014

yes, I have been scrapbooking and making cards between August and now. I just haven't posted them! (bad girl!!) but I figure posting took time away from making.....

anyway, this weekend is not only the Superb Owl competition (figure it out......) but also Operation Write Home's Card Bowl 2014. which, thanks to a crop night with the girls, I actually participated in!

Friday's challenge was to use the colors for one of the competing teams. I debated going with a black and white card and cheering for the referees but decided to throw my hat in with the Broncos.

Saturday's Challenge was courtesy of Our Daily Bread, an awesome Operation Write Home sponsor. they challenged us to brown as our main color. while there are several other colors in both my cards, I think they qualify as brown based.

And today, Operation Write Home introduced Sketch #210 and that was our final challenge. please note: if you look at the sizing on the OWH site, they are wrong. I believe the horizontal paper stripe is 2.5" instead of 1.5". 

for all but the "my stars" card, I was still able to use leftovers from layouts I had completed at the crop last night. that all worked out quite nicely!

I am with you - I thought the proportions on the measurements were backwards too! Great combination of patterns for a bright and cheery card.
