Operation Write Home Blog Hop!

I'm so honored to be a part of this AMAZING blog hop for Operation Write Home! I wanted to keep my card fairly simple so it is easy to make in larger quantities, but I also wanted to make it beautiful! So, I pulled out my Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium papers and made this simply beautiful card:


I added a tiny bit of sparkle with a couple of Spica Pens, which is embedded glitter that will not flake off. We don't want to accidentally endanger our troops! It's hard to see in the photo but in person this card shines. Thanks for checking out my card today! You can hop to the next blog in the line-up by clicking on the link below:
