Patriotic Gratitude

I was asked to make a card which could be included in care packages being sent to some of the troops in Afghanistan.  I was very honored, and even a little nervous!  It's an amazing thing all of the soldiers are doing over there, and I wasn't really sure I could do it justice, but this is what I came up with...
I measured the stars from the Verve stamp set, and then set about making a grid pattern on white with my paper cutter and scoring blade.  I used a color palette of Stampin' Up colors, Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy and Whisper White.  I then added a pennant for the sentiment, and a floral embellishment using the Daisy Big Shot die.  This was the "feminine" version, there was also a similar card using a stacked star embellishment for the guys.
