Operation Write Home Challenge #161

Operation Write Home collects greeting cards to supply our troops so they will have them to use.  This card was inspired by sketch challenge #161.
Made with Stampin' Up cardstock, designer paper, flower brads, ribbon, and Word Window punch.  Used Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Ovals with my Cuttlebug for the More Mustard and Wild Wasabi ovals.  The hot air balloon is from the Summer in Paris Cricut Cartridge.  The "Just Because" sentiment is from SU "Notably Ornate" stamp set.
