OWH WCMD Love Challenge with Blog Candy!!

Operation Write Home is hosting a Love Card blog hop for World Card Making Day. 

Here is my offering:

Vellum embossed with Darice folder, sentiment and hearts stamped on white, layered on a dark red base, tied with red satin ribbon.

If you are making cards for OWH, remember that many of our deployed heroes are coming home, and follow the new guidelines HERE

This month's challenge at Words2ScrapBy.blogspot.com is Paved with Paw Prints - all about our furry friends!  Check it out!

Added Note: I have received a few questions about embossing on vellum.  Most vellum will crack when embossed with a folder.  To keep it from cracking, I add a piece of medium weight card stock to the embossing sandwich.  Problem solved!
