Operation Write Home Card

Hi Everyone,
Today I have another card for Operation Write Home. I am slowly getting my box full. This card is an A2 size. And no glitter allowed. The inside will stay blank to leave lots of room for writing home. I used stamps from Impression Obsession. And, this card qualifies for their Blue themed challenge.



I stamped the bird with Versa Mark and embossed with blue powder (Stampendous). I masked the bird and stamped the background with Marina Mist ink from Stampin' Up. I added a birthday sentiment from My Sentiments Exactly! because OWH always needs bday cards. I kept the embellies to a minimum....the cards have to travel a long way and they pack better if not too bumpy. Here are a few detail shots.

I have a bunch of these on my work table half done. I did them in all different colors. I will add a variety of sentiments to them. I will share those with you too when they are completed.
