This card is for a couple of different challenges.  The first is the Operation Write Home’s challenge found HERE, and the second is the Stampin’ Sisters in Christ’s Challenge found HERE.

Weight and thickness matter when making cards for OWH so by making the red gingham a frame, you get the look of layers without actually having them.

Because of the dark cardstock, some white was added for writing.  A little dp brightens up the inside as well.

If you haven’t seen my Sketch Challenge for this month, check it out HERE.  There is still a week left to play and some blog candy.. a brand new 6 x 6 pad of designer paper is looking for a new home!

Happy Crafting!
