DT card - QKR Stampede #285 - Hearts for the Troops

Once again, we invite you to participate in the weekly Anything Goes challenge at QKR Stampede.  You may enter up to 3 times by Thursday at 6 p.m. EST.  Winners receive images from the QKR Stampede - there is also a winner for using QKR/Eureka images, with more images available for winners.
I selected this  image from Eureka (sister company to QKR Stampede) called Stars and Stripes balloons.  I am going to contribute some cards to a local group called Hearts for the Troops.  A navy mom sends many birthday cards each month to her son's buddies.  This week they are going to pack up gift packs of plastic eggs and candies - a lot of sailors are going to get some sweet treats!
I used a Spellbinder scalloped rectangle die cut to back the balloon image.  The sentiment is also from Eureka, and the Celebrate panel is a colored sticker from Creative Imaginations.  This time I colored with a red fine point Sharpie.  I used the sharpie and gel pens on the sentiment.

What a lovely and fun card you have made here which fits perfectly the Lemon Shortbread Monthly Challenge this fortnight. How lovely for you to help out the navy mum who sends cards to her son's friends. Such a lovely gesture from the heart. Thank you for entering and best wishes in the draw.
