OWH Memorial Blog Hop

Welcome to We Grow By Our Dreams. I made a fun card for the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Sketch Blog Hop.


I love making buntings, especially out of vintage sheets so I was so excited when I saw OWH's sketch #101. I made my card out of lots of flowery papers that remind me of vintage sheets.


Thanks again for stopping by We Grow By Our Dreams today. Check out all the other wonderful cards created using OWH sketches. Just click below.
