2014 First Sketch of the Year

Good morning everyone!  Oh my, what a delight and an honor to have one of my cards chosen for Operation Write Home's Sketch of the Week, the first for 2014!  I've learned so much from OWH card makers this last year, I feel my cards have a little touch of each one of you, thank you!

I really love this sketch, so versatile, not only in paper but in shapes too.  I'm big on letting sentiments and the paper do the talking.  A little dry embossing doesn't hurt either.  At any rate, I got so excited that I made a couple more versions to show the versatility of this sketch, hope it gets your mojo going too!   P.S.  If you use a stripe in your challenge, jump on over to the monthly Our Daily Bread Designs challenge and link up your creation there too!
