World Card Making Day Bloghop with OWH

Happy World Card Making Day!  This is my first time participating in an OWH bloghop because I only just started my crafting blog a few months ago…so, welcome!  If you need to get back to the top of the hop, you can click on the banner above or right here.  The theme this year was to make a thank you card based on one of the many OWH sketches that can be found here.  I chose sketch #44 because I’ve been wanting to color up this pretty sunflower image for a while and it’s a bit too large for most of the other sketches.
The image is from Stampendous (#P024 – Sunflower Ladybug) and I colored it with Prismacolor Pencils after embossing it in black on some Neenah Desert Storm cardstock.  And here is a detail shot:

I won’t take up any more of your time because there are many more blogs for you to hit, but I will list my other supplies below if there is something that strikes your fancy.  Thanks for stopping by and please enjoy the rest of the hop!
