OWH Sketch Challenge # 191

Hello everyone! Today's sketch challenge for Operation Write Home is to use this sketch:

You can find the details about the challenge here:

Here is my card:

The papers were all from my scrap pile, the sentiment is from Penny Black, and the tassels were hand made using an Omega variegated thread. Everything was layered on black card stock and I did a little hand-stitching on it (using the same Omega thread.)  The tassels are a bit bulkier than I usually use for Operation Write Home, so I added dimensional adhesive tape behind the sentiment to make the 
tassels not stick out so much. 

Thank you for stopping by!


  1. VERY cute! Love the stitching!

  2. Such a bright cheery card, love how you duplicated the stitching into the the little tassels. This will brighten someone's day for sure!

  3. Now this is a happy card!! I love the colors and the added details.

  4. This is such a fun, happy card! And I LOVE the stitching!

  5. Beautiful card, I love how you used the different colored Omega thread to stitch this, it looks awesome! ~Diane

    1. Thank you Lindsay!

      After watching you make all those fabulous pompoms last week, I really wanted to add pompoms to these cards.....I am still toying with it in my head to see if I can come up with a pompom-looking embellishment without getting too bulky.
