World Spectacular Hero – OWH Sketch #128

Standard

Today’s “sketch challenge” for Operation Write Home, was to create a card using “Sketch #128.”  One of the great things about Operation Write Home, is the abundant library of card sketches with measurements and examples for you to copy and share, or for your own use.  The card challenges offered during the week, allow me to stretch my card making brain and explore different ideas and color pallets I would not normally try.

This card is also an “Any Hero” card.  In addition to cards made for soldiers to write home on, OWHer’s also send a quantity of cards to thank Heroes for their service.  Since I don’t know who exactly will receive this card, it is addressed to “Any Hero,” and will be distributed when it arrives at the destination base.  Since Any Hero cards won’t be mailed back to the States. this card can have lumpier embellishments without the fear of the envelope being destroyed.

All products unless otherwise listed can be purchased online 24/7 from my Stampin’ Up! store.  All proceeds from purchases from my online store go to supplies for Operation Write Home cards and donations.
