Operation Write Home

Here's a gorgeous card that was made for Operation Write Home (OWH).  I was in a blog hop last week and I spoke about this program which is collecting cards to be sent to the soldiers.  There was a wonderful group of companies that are supporting this cause, including A Day For Daisies, which gave me this adorable little fairy stamp that I used to create this card.  I will be donating this card to OWH.  This cute fairy is called Tiny Bell Fairy.  I am using a sentiment from Sweet Pea Stamps.  I am sure a soldier will send this to a family member wishing to them that their dreams to come true, I left the inside blank, so it could be used to wish birthday greetings, missing you wishes, or other sentiments.

All the gorgeous papers on this card are from Paper Temptress.  The base of the card is a thick column cardstock called Canyon Brown Skinny Columns.  The wonderful textured paper on the base is ruche called Sky Blue Crepe.  The white paper which has the digi-stamp fairy and the stamped sentiment on it is Heavenly White. I also added a tiny border that I created with a Martha Stewart punch using a small leftover strip of Basis Gold.  I edged all the textured cardstocks with various types of ink to give some depth to the card.

Don't forget that Paper Temptress is having a wonderful Contest filled with prizes from many companies and they are also collecting cards, just like the one shown here.  There are guidelines for the requested cards (click here).  The contest and the address to send your cards to this program is included  HERE (click here). 

Cheers all!  Holley
