Birthday Boy & Operation Write Home preview

Are you looking forward to the Operation Write Home Blog Hop??  We sure are!  It's coming up soon!  So for today's post I decided to give you a sneak peak at one of the cards I am sending to our brave soldiers.

The image I used is from A Day For Daisies who is one of the many sponsors for the Operation Write Home Blog Hop!  It is printed on my favorite paper Cryogen White which is VERY copic-friendly.  I love how it shines and is very smooth and great for blending your copic markers.  It's great for all your inks as I sponged around the inside of the tag with water-based ink pad.


Don't you just love all these luscious papers from the Paper Temptress?  I used Amethyst for the background; Emerald Azalea and Bronz for the flag and Emerald for the "happy birthday" sentiment.   Just a hint, I used a water-based ink to stamp the sentiment and then used clear embossing powder and heat-set it so the ink wouldn't smear.


Here's a closer look at the image.  Isn't he cute?

Thank you for stopping by today!  I look forward to each and every visit!  Don't forget to check back on October 2nd for our official Operation Write Home Blog Hop.  Make some cards for our soldiers and win some great gifts as well!
