Praying For Our Deployed Heroes

Isn't it nice to know that people are praying for you, especially when you are going through a tough time?  I am starting to pray for the person who receives my Any Hero cards as I box them up. They do need our prayers.  For this card I actually put the words on the front.
Usually I use Memento Rich Cocoa as my brown ink but this time I grabbed an old stamp pad by Personal Stamp Exchange.  I really like the red-brown color. The background paper which looks textured is actually a digital paper by GKD.  Isn't it neat?  This is the sketch I used at Tuesday Morning Sketch:
The main image is ODBD.  Sentiment is GKD and the little stars in the corners is a StampinUp stamp. I don't know where I purchased the star buttons but I have only 2 left and sad to say goodbye to those in my stash.
Base is SU Chocolate Brown, panel is GKD Textured Tan.
