OWH Sketch #254

We are going to finish strong for Operation Write Home, which will cease accepting cards after August 1. It's such a bittersweet time--OWH has been part of my life since 2010--but of course it's wonderful that our servicemen and women aren't deployed in a war and fewer are deployed at other spots overseas.  I pray it stays that way.

I have learned so much from OWH and Sandy; and the weekly sketch has been both a motivator and a guide for me. I learned early that I can't make a good card without a sketch! Here's Sketch #254 followed by my card:
 
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget the big annual OH Memorial Day Bloghop on Sat., May 23!

The color combination and papers, that pretty flower with the pearl center plus a great sketch made for one lovely card ! Many of us are going to be looking for another worthwhile cause to put our talents (and supplies!) to use for once OWH closes; bittersweet, indeed.
