Operation Write Home

I am currently making cards for Operation Write Home, which sends blank handmade cards to deployed servicemen and women. OWH is an amazing organization that ships thousands of cards each month to our nation's Heroes so they have something to write home on. Please check out the tag on the sidebar for more information on this inspiring mission. Please join me in supporting our men and women who sacrifice for us all.

MWT - Things With Wings

The MidWeek Throwdown at OWH is Things With Wings.  I had made these cards before I knew the challenge.  (How the heck did that happen?)  I thought this DCWV paper was simply summery and with Sandy's inspirational card last week using just pretty paper and a sentiment, well, this one seemed like a no-brainer.  The only thing I added was the punched butterfly, the heart gem, the sentiments and the bee.  Ok, a little ruffles and stitching as well but basically, this is just the pretty paper. 
The bee is a K&Co. 3-D sticker that I covered in Dimensional Glaze to give him some special love.

That is truly beautiful paper! I also think the embellishments you added are perfect! They're lovely, but the paper is still the star! (And how cool is it that you already had the cards made?)
