D2D bear and OWH cards

I was on a card making frenzy today!  I used all digital images- the first is my weekly D2D (Designed2Delight) card:

And a close up of the shimmer and the popped-up flowers:

The first week of each month, D2D gives a free digital image. If you make and post a card with that image, you get the next one free- a perpetual free image….of course, if you miss one, you can still purchase it from the D2D store.  Image colored with Copics (flowers Y21, Y23, Y26 in center)

I also have a big place in my heart for the soldiers- I have been sending boxes to Iraq for ~ 5 years.  The Operation Write Home Group is celebrating a birthday,  and there are tons of challenges going on right now.  I wanted to make cards for the challenge:
