An Any Hero card each week???

While working on a card for OWH Sketch 103, a thought came to mind. What if I made an Any Hero card for each week's sketch challenge? Each card would be different -- and I would get to try out lots of designs.

I don't know if I will be able to make all 52 sketches. But, I will make an Any Hero card for each sketch I attempt. [And, I have a stack of pre-written messages just waiting for designed card fronts! :)]

All that said, I like my quasi-Any-Hero-card resolution better than this week's card. My goal was to make a more feminine version of my "Your Service Means the World to Me" trunk card.

So, I went with paper with pastel-hued images of landmarks, (including the Taj Mahal and Leaning Tower of Pisa), a raspberry-colored cardstock, and a more feminine computer font (Mistral). After adding the gray/blue cardstock, I actually think the card ended up being gender-neutral. And, while I like it, I don't think it has quite the panache of the trunk card. It certainly doesn't come close to this week's sample card.

Landmark paper from DCWV Travel Stack;
Computer-generated sentiments;
Miscellaneous cardstocks and embellishments,
including 2 pieces of neutral-colored ribbon for sheen

Wish me luck on my Any Hero quasi-resolution. And, happy scrappin' to all!
