OWH Midweek Throwdown: Kids Cards

The challenge over at the OWH Stars and Stamps Midweek Throwdown is to make cards for kids. I used this cute Cocoa mouse image from SNSS and colored him with Copics, adding Tumbled Glass ink for the sponged sky background. I did this in primary colors, adding a little neon Copic color for some extra brightness. The background was done with scraps, embossed with 2 different CB ef's, and I added a little hardware clip and a snippet of yellow/white ribbon for the finishing touch.

Are you watching the Olympics? How about Misty-May Treanor & Kerri Walsh Jennings?! I really hope they capture the gold - they're an awesome volleyball team! When they win, Misty-may looks into the camera and dedicates the win to her loved ones and the troops! How cool is that!! I hope they go all the way and grab that gold medal!

Thanks for checking in with me today - make it a great Wednesday!
