Paper Smooches Circle of Honor


I have a fun card today for our Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps sketch challenge sponsored by Paper Smooches.  This cute Eagle is from the Paper Smooches Circle of Honor clear stamp set.  When we (the OWH blog team) were asked if we'd like to make samples for this sketch I didn't have any Paper Smooches stamps so Paula stamped images from this set and mailed them to me so I could play too.  I have to tell you that I thought this was such a cute set I had to go look at their store and now have a "wish list", and um, I did buy one set called Happy Camper and I'm in love with their stamps now...  

I colored this cute Eagle with Copic markers:

Y32, Y35, E40, Y00, Y000, B0000, B01

The layout is this weeks OWH sketch challenge, I also used a new banner die from Verve Visual called Pennant Trim Die, Spellbinders dies and a couple of embossing folders.   My card stock choices are Via Vellum Black, Mohawk Bright White and Astrobrights Galaxy Gold.

I hope you'll play along in our Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps sketch challenge this week!

Jan, what a darling image and colored so nicely. I've never noticed that banner die before, but it now has to go on my wish list. I also really like that embossing folder and your pinked circle. Enjoy your Sunday.
