OWH-Blog Challenges

I have been busy getting some cards done for the OWH blog hop that CC is hosting.  With the exception of one card that used the EP Be Mine paper they were all made using EP Life is Good paper collection.  I got a few sheets in a CC grab bag on my last order and after seeing Nina's challenge to use one collection I decided to make the majority of cards with that collection (except for Chris's card at the bottom).  It made it easy to mix and match patterns and scraps, as a result I have none left which is a good thing.  Another decision I made was to use one main card style and stamp.  I wanted to make sure the cards had lots of room to write in and because I couldn't use some of my usual embellishments I thought a gate fold card would be nice.



*you can see it in the card but I put an embossed transparency over top the paper for a clear embossed feel
