OWH Sketch BlogHop...

Welcome to the Operation Write Home Sketch Bloghop.

The first card I have to share features HAMBO Stamps: Party Chicks #2701.  I used K&Co Americana Paper stack and solid white and red cardstock.  Ribbon is by Pure Color Essentials.  I added a star brad to the ballon which is cut out and popped up with a dimensional.  The nest has moss adhered with Crystal Effects.  PrismaColor pencils were used to color the image and nestabilites die for the circles. This card uses SKETCH#52.

The next card features an SU! image also colored with PrimsaColor pencils.  Same papers with twine and a silver star charm. This card uses SKETCH#15.

Lastly, is a simple sentiment I received from a friend.  Same papers.  This card uses SKETCH #18 turned upright.

Thanks for stopping by.
