OWH Anniversary Cards

Happy 4th of July!! 
A new Midweek Throwdown Challenge starts today on the Operation Write Home Stars & Stamp blog and the theme is Anniversary.  Jan emailed me and asked if I could make a sample or two for the challenge!! :) So here are my cards...
My first card feature a sweet image from Pink Cat Studios and since it's the 4th of July I went with a Patriotic color combo!
On my second card I used an image from Wee Stamps, I love this image and thought it would be be perfect for watercoloring!          
To play along with this weeks challenge... just make an Anniversary card and link it up here AND all the information/guidelines for making cards for OWH can be found on their main blog!

Tammy, I saw your cards on OWH's blog-they are so cute. Those sweet little birds are adorable and that frog with the balloons cracked me up. You are a brilliant color-er.
