Thank You Hero: Our Daily Bread Design Challenge

Hello everyone, another weekend gone and another chance to make a few cards.  I've been really engaged in cleaning my craft room, so I definitely felt I deserved some crafty time as a reward!  This month's Our Daily Bread Design Challenge is to make a thank you card for our service heroes.  ODBD donates shipping dollars for up to two flat rate shipping boxes if 50 of us card makers participate in the monthly challenge.  What an easy fun way to earn shipping and have a good excuse to make cards!

Well, on to the fun part.  I combined the challenge with a recent Operation Write Home sketch, and I also got a little CASE inspiration from a fellow card maker, Sabrina.  Her card was just perfect to get my mojo going! I know our Heroes will love it!

DP:  Authentique "Pride" 6x6
        MME "Lost & Found"
Sentiment:  Computer generated with Paper Studio 2
Punches:  Circles - Fiskars and Recollections; Star- Ki
Sentiment banner:  I don't have a true banner die, but I used a hexagon die to cut the banner tails, makes  a wider, shorter angle than a right angle/square die on point.
