Operation Write Home Blog Hop and Color My Heart

This week at Color My Heart, we are supporting Operation Write Home by participating in the Memorial Day weekend Blog Hop. We are using colors from a previous challenge. I am using CMH Dare #18 - Avonlea Teal, La Belle Vie Pink, and Flirty Raspberry. The sketch is OWH sketch #1.


I left it minimally embellished to allow the colors to be the primary focus. If you'd like to know more about Color My Heart, please see my previous post, or visit us at Color My Heart Color Dare.
Sketch Challenge #1

ETA: I decided after seeing so many generous people in this hop giving away blog candy that I would too! Comment on my blog and one random winner will get 5 6x6 cards and a small grab bag of Close To My Heart inks and/or stamps and/or embellishments!
