Freshly Made Sketches #31

This card has two meanings for me.  First, I think of ALL my friends who are serving in the military and are deployed for months away from their families.  Everyday I pray for their safety and safe return home.  Second, although there are tons of card challenges out there… my thoughts are always with Freshly Made Sketches.

To make my card I turned it around and used my 2 1/2″ cirle punch through the paper and stamped my image on the Very Vanilla colored base paper.  The red ribbon adds a splash of color and brings the clean and simple card to life.  Three brads to the bottom right of the image add a cute sparkle too.
