OWH sketch challenge

It has been so long since I have done anything as a challenge (I know with the exception of Getting Cricky) But I am trying to work on my confidence level and sharing things that I make. I love this organization and truly want to get some cards made for them. Every time I think I will make some I see everyone else's cards and can not bring myself to send mine. But if you have been following you know that I am working on this issue slowly but surely.
So I decided to start with a sketch challenge to get moving in the right direction.

I did this first one and had not paid attention to the sizing on the strips. So mine does not quite meet the requirements but I really like the way it came out. Jeff has been bringing me papers from work that were slated for the trash and there is quite a bit of metallic in them. I love it and really like the way it looks on this card. I had a bit of trouble photographing it without making a shadow....

This second card follows the dimensions a bit

Thank you so much for stopping by.
Remember to Enjoy the process.
hugs, Brenda
