First, my fond congratulations to Operation Write Home for sending its one millionth card to our deployed heroes. My congratulations also to all those who made cards and contributed them to OWH. If you haven't seen it yet, there is a really great video entitled "Thanks a Million" which gives one some perspective on how many cards that really is. Go HERE to see it. I am thankful to be a part of this in a miniscule way and I think Blessed Mother Theresa would approve!
I am also pleased to return to blogging and being more active with my passion of crafting with paper. Today, it is OWH's Sketch #69 and MFP's Speedy the Cat Friend's Challenge #55. For MFP's challenge, the card should be monochromatic blues.
Here is what the OWH sketch looks like:
And here is my card:
The color is washed out but hopefully you get the idea. The DP is from DCWV's Luxury stack. The butterfly is from Stampin Up's Wonderful Wing set and colored with Copics; the sentiment is from my computer on a Spellbinder's die cut. The ribbon is french blue Stampin Up grosgrain ribbon and the clear embellishment underneath the ribbon (don't know if you can see it) is from K & Company. The pearls and gold wire for the butterfly's antennae are from my stash.
Thanks for coming by and again congratulations to all who help make the one millionth card possible! Blessings on your week!
