OWH Sketch #246 card challenge

I had some crafty time yesterday and today and made a few cards for some card challenges. The first one is for Operation Write Home's Mid-Month Throwdown. The theme is to make thank you cards for our heroes to write in to send home.

The second card is for OWH's sketch #246 card challenge.

My final card is for the current Cards in Envy challenge to use banner on a card. Although all three of my cards actually qualify. I've had a few sheets of this 12x12 paper for several years and thought it worked perfectly with the fun puzzle piece die/stamp set.
