Paper Players Challenge #88

Happy Tuesday (or is it called "We Survived Monday"?)!  Today I would like to enter this card in The Paper Players Challenge #88 - A Sketch from Ann.  I'd been looking for an excuse to use this darling typewriter stamp and as soon as I saw Ann's fun sketch I knew that's just what I would do.  I keep thinking of what a special note this would be from someone in the service to their loved ones back home (or vise versa).  Could be considered a masculine card too.  Not too overly mushy - just sweet, don't you think?

Here's Ann sketch that I used:

And a picture of the finished inside:  

Thanks for stopping by to see my card. I hope you liked it and saw something that inspired you to try something new, or make a sweet love note to someone who would love to hear from you. Hugs!
