June Challenge at The Stamping Boutique!

Hi!  Have you heard about the month long challenge at The Stamping Boutique?!  I've  copied and pasted right from  their blog post below, check it out!

We will randomly select one winner each month to win 5 FREE images of their choice.  Also the person that links up the most will win 5 FREE images of their choice.  We will also be selecting our Guest Designers from these contests too.  What are you waiting for, you know you want to win those FREE images and you can't win if you don't enter!  I put a link to that blog post in their name above, click it and the link will take you there.

How cool is that?!

My card today is a Stamping Boutique image called Teen Whimsy, isn't she cute?!  I had so much fun coloring her and making my card I made three of them.  With each card I stepped it up just a little.  The card pictured above is the last one I made.  I air brushed the background and tried my hand at adding clouds.  

This next card I air brushed the background but hadn't thought of clouds yet.  I used a sketch that Karen made for Operation Write Home a few months ago, love it!  The top panels on both of these cards started out as Neenah Solar white card stock, I embossed them with Cuttlebug embossing folders then air brushed them with the Copic marker colors I used in the girls tops.  The 3 gems are also air brushed to match!
This was my first card and I sponged the background.  I'm not sure if you can tell but on each of the card bodies I used the Stampin' Up! Just Jeans background stamp to repeat the "jeans" pattern.  

Two of my three cards are for Operation Write Home and go into my "OWH box".  I have set a goal for myself to send one box a month to Operation Write Home for our troops.  These cards also qualify for the Operation Write Home Midweek Stash Challenge - Bring Out Your Bling!
