Stars & Stamps Challenge #20

Here we go with week 20 of the Stars & Stamps Challenge over at the Operation Write Home website. By now, I'm sure most of you who are looking at this are very familiar with the OWH. If not, click the link and check it out.

This is the sketch we have been given:

And, here is the card I did using the sketch:

The double-sided paper is from Stampin' Up. I have no idea where the background paper came from - I found it in my stash! The image is a digi from Etsy. I printed it and "Sending my love" using Microsoft Publisher. I colored the image using both LaPlume and Zig markers.

Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge #19

First of all, I'd like to thank everyone who visited my blog during the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop. I had a fun time visiting all the different blogs and learning some new things.

This is week 19 of the Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge. This is the sketch we were to use....

Here's what I did with it...

I made this card for a friend who needs a little picking up.

The stamps and ink are from Stampin' Up. I chalked the edges with Pearlescent Chalk by Pebbles, Inc. and used both Zig and LePlum markers to color. I don't know what the paper is; it's just stuff I have! I used Stickles for the center of the flowers. (I love Stickles!)
