My Special Friend!


My card today is for the Operation Write Home Stars & Stripes Midweek Throwdown challenge.  
We have a sponsor this week, it's Michelle Perkett Studios!  Michelle has generously given us two digital images to work with for our cards for Operation Write Home this week.  Michelle is also awarding a prize package for this challenge!!

This is my first card for the challenge using Michelle's "my special friend" digital image, I think this little girl and her pup are just adorable!   She's colored with Copic markers and I used OWH Sunday sketch #30 for my layout.  It's one of those sketches that I'm going to have to try with lots of different images I'm afraid!  

Now... I think if you haven't been there already, you should link on over to Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps and check it out!
Challenges:
Totally Gorjuss - Aqua
Auds Sentiments - Anything Goes
Digi Doodle Shops Best - Anything Goes
Charisma Cards - Die Cuts
The Secret Crafter - What Are Little Girls Made Of

Another wonderful card Jan! I love it. I went looking for this image in Michelle's studio, but can't seem to find it. I'll guess I better go look again.

Your coloring is always gorgeous and it truly inspires me to keep practicing and continue making cards.

Hugs,
Lisa
