OWH Midweek Throwdown…Red White & Blue!

Our Daily Bread designs, Operation Write Home

Another card for my Operation Write Home stash! I need to pack them up and get them sent off!

This is Our Daily Bread designs, To the Lovebirds with matching Bird Cage and Banner dies and Banner Sentiments.

Several challenges rolled up into this card… the color and sketch challenge on Splitcoast and the OWH Midweek Throwdown is also a color challenge!

I thought this would work for either a guy or gal to send home to their sweetie as a ‘just because’ or anniversary….even birthday works!

You can see I stamped the backside of the birdcage also, so when the doors are open you still see the cage wires. Had I been REALLY trying to make it look like the inside of the cage, I would have lightly stamped the cage then the birds over…. dang! Now I’m wishing I would have done that!!

Oh well….guess that means I need to make another card another day and do just that!!

This is such a special card, Dawn. I'm loving all of the embossed panels, so perfect with the main image. And LOVE the opening of the cage.
