Special Mission: Operation Thank Our Veterans

Operation Write Home has teamed up with We R Memory Keepers for a Special Mission.  OWH cardmakers will donate thank you cards for Operation Thank Our Veterans.  These cards are like Any Hero Cards for our deployed troops, only these will go to VA Hospitals to thank our veterans.  I'm working on some of these cards this weekend.

These eagle digis are from Operation Write Home and were colored with Prismacolor pencils, then cut out and mounted on black cardstock.  The starburst was done similar to this tutorial except that I cut the rectangles 1" X 4", then cut them diagonally before mounting the strips to the blue cardstock.  I rounded the top corners of both the blue and red cardstock and mounted them to the white base card.

I have several more of these cut out and just need to assemble them.  Tomorrow, I will write personal notes to the veterans inside the cards and mail them to We R Memory Keepers.
