OWH - Memorial Day "Finishing Strong" Blog Hop

http://operationwritehome.org/finishing-strong-bloghop/

Operation Write Home is saying good-bye.  I'm sad, but it's a good thing.  You can read why by clicking the banner above. 



For this card, I white embossed the image from "Give a Lift" by CTMH over watercolor paper.  I used actual watercolor paints in blue, red, brown, and green. The edges of both the oval and blue background were sponged in Momento Rich Cocoa. To finish, I added lots of little pearls in various sizes around the flowers.

And so I add another fond farewell to my ever-growing list.  Thanks, OWH, for all you've done to support the military.  You've spread smiles around the globe, touching hearts and strengthening bonds through long separations.  The world is forever a better place because you cared.

Until next time,
Becca
