Thanks to a Hero

Time to make some hero cards to send to  OWH.  I am embarrassed to say that I did not include any in the last box I sent so I am making a batch of them to send off.  How important it is to let our troops know how much we appreciate their service.
Used up some scraps again - hooray!   The sketch at CPS is perfect this week for that.
I rubbed a little bit of Tim Holz tea dye distress ink on the embossed stars.  The "thanks" is a die cut and the stars are by Ippity.  C/S - Kraft and Pure Ivory by GKD, Chocolate by SU
Challenges: Verve - Kraft
CraftYour Passion - texture
Crafty Cardmakers - for the boys
Cutie Pie - monochromatic
Simon Says - anything
