A card for a Soldier............

Hi there everyone, Emma here............

We have a very special challenge happening at Cowgirls Sunday....
This week our challenge is to create "Christmas and Holiday Cards".
We would like for you to keep the Soldiers at war
in mind while you make your card or cards.....
Please do not use glitter or anything flashy as it could put a soldiers life in danger.
The soldiers at war do not have access to simple things
that many of us take for granted like Christmas and Holiday Card's.
For full details of the challenge and the campaign click HERE....
We have two fabulous sponsors for this special challenge.....Whimsy Stamps and Whiff of Joy.

For my card, I had to keep it simple and as flat as possible and.................NO GLITTER!!!!!!!!!!!! (Panic attack!!!!!!!!!) my papers are all Nitwits, and I have distressed all edges..........

...My image is called 'Reindeer Games 2', and I have coloured it with Promarkers and chalks....I have added a little flowersoft.....

...My sentiment is an old fabric label from my stash.

Challenges entering with this card:-
Thanks for looking and all the lovely comments that you leave......

Big hugs
