More Thanks for Troops

There was a card making blog hop at OWH this weekend.  I didn't get a chance to enter any of the challenges but this morning I was able to make a couple more "Thank you" cards for a few more heros.  This time around I am making some for the women in our services.
Stamp TV challenge was to make a card with bright colors.The digital image is by Sandy Allnock at OWH.  I think the poppies in California are popping open about now.  I love them.  They were open yet when I was down there last month. I know the silk flower isn't a poppy but close enough, right?
Here is the sketch I used from Seems a Little Sketchy
Other Challenges:
Crafty Friends - colors
Mark's Finest - three DP's
Di's Designs - Spring
Mema's - Bingo    button, ribbon, dry emboss
OWH ODBD challenge - 5 elements  button, twine, ribbon, flower, dry emboss

    1. This is so pretty. Reminds me so much of the hillsides nearby. Yes the California poppies are blooming right now. I live in the middle of a bunch of them.
