*which translates to Operation Write Home Virtual Card Making Party for National Scrapbooking Day"

Challenge # 1- Make "Missing You" cards sponsored by Our Daily Bread Designs

My goal for this "Party" is to use up as many & as much old papers, supplies, & colored stamped images (of which I have a box full) as I can & hopefully not fall prey to the IKEA effect that Sandy warned us about a couple of months ago.
This first card uses one of the very first digi stamps I ever printed & colored (but never used.)  The original colors were all wrong for the papers I had chosen, but that's one of the many wonderful things about Copics- you can change & manipulate colors.
As originally colored - Digi by Sliekje Designs

Recolored to match papers I was using (flash not working-so very dark)
I'm sorry I don't have the equipment or the set up to make decent pictures and I'm afraid these are not showing up well enough to really show the difference but in person there is quite a noticeable difference in the image.
