Thank You in Silver Pacific Red for PPA259

 Another week, another challenge. Will you participate? Pals Paper Arts challenges YOU to create something with paper and use the colors above. The colors are just a starting point to inspire you! I didn't use Silver Foil, but used Silver Glimmer Paper instead. 

I needed a card to thank and encourage a military wife friend of mine whose husband is deployed to Afghanistan for six months. He's only one month into the deployment, but her attitude is supportive and calm. That is the perfect way to support a soldier! The troops need to know you can handle the home front because they have their life and the life of others on the line while overseas. The military family at home needs lots of support and encouragement so they don't need burden their deployed loved one with every day problems. (I'm talking plumbing problems, flat tires and the like).

 I also decided to use Red Glimmer paper to add even more sparkle. Here you can see my Stampin' Write Marker coloring in Real Red. Didn't mean for anyone to look that closely!!

I hope you are inspired to create something using the Pals Paper Arts colors! Won't you leave me a comment on my blog? I'd love to hear from you.
