Homeless Vets

Today I made a card for a two-fold purpose. 

The first reason was for Cards for a Cause. This month's mission is to make and donate cards for health care staff to give to their clients, who are homeless vets. My husband is a Viet Nam war vet and now has cancer caused by Agent Orange. This mission is near and dear to my heart. It's one thing to not have your health, but it's a totally different arena when you don't have a house. 

The second reason was the inspiration for this card. Match the Sketch Challenge

The card base is Basic Gray, the designer series paper is from "Walk in the Park" and is retired, the vertical banner is Basic Black, the horizontal banner is Silver Glimmer paper and the sand dollar is stamped in Basic Black on Basic Gray and fussy cut. That stamp set is "By the Seashore" and is retired. The circle was cut out of the DSP using the 2 1/2" circle punch, which is retiring and will no longer be available May 31, 2016. The sentiment is from Perfectly Penned, which is also retired. All products are Stampin' Up. I can say, "I am retired too!" Thanks for looking!
