Purple Heart Valentine

Card for a Purple Heart Marine: Maj. Bill White

Festive Friday Challenge: #FF0051: Pick 3
Your Next Step: #YNS131: Share the Love

This card is for a 104 year old marine by the name of Maj. Bill White. I watched the video: (Link) and he is requesting Valentine’s cards to be sent to him from around the world, so I’m mailing mine from Virginia.

I used Stampin’ Up’s Bloomin’ heart die with dark purple cardstock, I embossed the sentiment and banner in gold and fussy cut it out. Festive Friday requested three items be included, so I chose a doily heart and a gold cupid charm. Share the Love is the theme at “Your Next Step” so I thought this card worked well for that challenge as well. Maybe you’ll send him a Valentine too?

If you would like to send White a Valentine’s Day card, you can address it to:

Operation Valentine
