Happy World Card Making Day!

I've been participating with Operation Write Home this past year -- making cards for service members so they can use them to send birthday greetings, miss you, etc back home to loved ones and friends. Today, I am also playing along with their World Card Making Day Blog Hop via the link below. 

Operation Write Home Blog Hop

The theme this year is a "Thank You" card based on one of their sketches. Here's the sketch I used: 


And here is my card:


It was a quick card. I just got back into town after being overseas for a week. The pattern paper is Stampin' Up! Print Poetry stack. Sentiment is Flourishes Sentimental Favorites stamped with SU! Night of Navy. Brads are Stampin' Up Vintage Trinkets. I used TH Vintage Photo along the edges of pattern paper and sentiment paper. 

Happy World Card Making Day!!
