Sweet Dreamer's Challenge #8 Ebony and Ivory

For my Sweet Dreamers Blog Group Challenge #8, we are to create a card with the theme Ebony and Ivory. Can you believe I have NEVER made a black and White card before???

I decided to make a card for my soldier box that is just about ready to go to Iraq. I recently read that a highly desired sentiment is "Miss You". I used a more masculine theme, but nuturing at the same time- perfect for a soldier to send to his/her daughter or son, don't you think? BG paper is by making memories, Stamps Firecracker Designs by Pamela, Elephants on Parade

.

I think the soldiers will like this card- they do not pay postage from Iraq to mail letters home. I hope it will warm someone's heart!

Thanks for stopping by! Your comments are greatly appreciated!
