Operation Write Home Stars & Stripes blog for today, how fun! Karen e mailed me about it Saturday and I jumped at the chance. I really enjoy doing different challenges and sometimes freak out because I can't think of what to do right away, it usually comes to me though.
I used OWH Sketch #15 by Bev E. I was stumped for a moment and then got busy sizing my digital stamp from Tidly Inks so it would fit on the side panel. I thought I'd take advantage of the polka dots on her dress, hair bow and gift by using this digital paper I knew I had. I'm sorry I looked for who it's by but couldn't find a name. That's also where I got the colors for today's challenge, Pink, Turquoise & Yellow-Green. This little girl's name is Annie, I colored her using the Copic markers pictured below.
My card looked like it needed something. There's pretty pink ribbon on her gift box so I went looking for some of my own. The long strip of ribbon is attached to the card panel and tied in the middle with a piece of thread to gather it in. I used my kids again as my "bow easy" and stuck the bow to the ribbon with foam tape. Before I attached the panel with Annie on it I carefully stamped the happy birthday under her. To finish my card I added tiny white half pearls to the buckles of her shoes. The only stamp used on my card is the sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Delightful Dahlia set. I'm loving the digital stamps.
I hope you have time today to create something fun!
