*****BLOG CANDY - See details HERE******

Happy Friday everyone!  I've been home sick the last two days thanks to an icky cough and head cold.  I am finally feeling a tad bit better and decided to get a little crafty this evening.  This card was created using this freebie from Meljen's Designs.  I used this weeks Midnight Madness Sketch #73 and Meljen's monochromatic challenge as my primary jumping off point.  Meljen's challenge this week is for Operation Write Home.  Check out more information about OWH HERE.  I colored the image with copic markers and then went over the entire image with chalk.  The two accent leaves are from the same Meljen's image just bigger and printed on patterned paper.  The paper is MME.  Thanks for looking!
