Operation Write Home and Lawn Fawn

Operation Write Home is one of my favorite crafty causes, and they currently have a challenge going on with Lawn Fawn.

Your job, if you choose to accept it, is to create a card that can be sent to a child.

I just received LF's Sunny Skies set from the lovely Tiffany, and was anxious to ink it up. It's a pretty simple design, and if I wasn't trying to keep the card flat, I likely would have popped out the sun and the banner and bird on the bottom, but since the sun and bird are so delicate I didn't want to chance them getting damaged/ripped.

I did add a little definition to the banner (which I cut using the Artiste cartridge at 1 1/4") with a black pen.

Easy peasy. Hope you're having a great weekend!

Supplies Used
Paper/Cardstock: My Mind's Eye - Six by Six Happy Day Designer Pad; CTMH - Dotty for You papers, Creme Brulee and Buttercup cardstock and White Daisy bulk card base.
Stamps: Lawn Fawn - Sunny Skies
Ink: CTMH - Black
Other: CTMH - Cricut Artiste Cartridge; Tombow - Mono Adhesive; Pigma - Black Micron Pen
