Ocean Seagull Card for OWH - Featured Digi Sketch

Over a month ago I began chatting with a delightful lady known here in blogland as Nana Connie.   Her blog is Grammy's Attic.  If you are familiar with the Operation Write Home project, you will probably have run into her from time to time.  As we got talking she mentioned that she would be doing a featured card for the Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown at the end of July, and that the theme would be WATER.  I offered to do a digital sketch especially for her to use, and when I found out she loves SEAGULLS, this is what I came up with for her:

(I plan to post Connie's Seagull next Monday with the regular digital sketches)... but if you choose to save it from this post, please follow my simple Terms of Use ... thank you. :)

So now that it's official and Connie's lovely card is up and shining on the OWH page (she was very clever with her paper piecing of the image--really wonderful idea)....
I decided to play along too with the same image.
  Anyway, how could I not? ;)
Here is my card:

I'm also entering in the following:

And the following color variation for the Just Add Ink #78 challenge:

Materials Used on these Cards:

Thank you so much to Connie for featuring my sketch in her card art, and many thanks to all of you for visiting!
