An Open Heart

My favorite new stamp set is 'An Open Heart'.  I finally ordered it and this is my first time using it.

This is a 'Thank You' card for one of my daughter's fellow Airmen who sent us a Memorial Video put together by the 433 Security Forces Squadron, San Antonio, TX.  I thought it such an honor that they loved her enough to honor her in this way.

The Challenges:
SUO127  (Favorite New Stamp Set)

CC541 (Color Challenge: Rose Red, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, Dessert: Ribbon... I only had Whisper White Ribbon so I used my Rose Red Stampin' Write marker to color it Rose Red)

SC551 (Sketch Challenge)
