Stretch N Bubbles sketch challenge

Today I am sharing my first challenge card using a digi stamp...the stamps is from Stretch N Bubbles, as is the Sketch, which is their first sketch challenge.  I never thought I'd use digi stamps, and more importantly I never really knew anything about them...but knowing I can draw some...this means I might be able to make some myself and be a designer in the future or possibly own my own little digi stamp business...but I am not going to get ahead of myself yet.

STRETCH N BUBBLES  (click) has some cute images, and they give one away free every Wednesday, and I believe sketch challenges are either weekly or monthly...I do not remember right at this moment. :(  

I want to ADD that I am in the middle of making a lot of cards for OWH (Operation Write Home), which is why I wrote the sentiment I did.

anyway, several images...the LAST ONE is a scan, the rest are photos.  Products used to follow.

Great card! I LOVE the colors you used. I've never used a digi stamp, but my interest gets peeked more and more everyday...

Love the card and the colors you used! I've never used digi stamps either. I know nothing about them. I am guessing they are basically a slip art type image. How sweet of you to make cards for the OWH!
