I just love this digital image I played with today.  It is one of the many cute images available from our sponsor, Meljen's Designs, a great source for digital stamps.  I can pretty much guarantee that with such cute images and a great sketch, the C4C blog will have fabulous creations for you to see this week.  So, be sure to check it out.
 
Speedy's Friends Challenge #21
Special Challenge -- OWH Stars snd Stripes Birthday



I used the Flourished Sea Creatures set from Speedy the Cats Designer Collection to create this card.  I kept it pretty simple, and just added some paper piercing.

Thanks so much for looking.
