With all the tragedy that has been in the news of late, I’ve been pondering the hard work and sacrifice that our first responders provide to our communities. My husband is a volunteer member of our local EMS squad, and we have several friends that are fire fighters and police officers. I know from first-hand experience that the dedication of these women and men is profound, and we can never fully appreciate all that they give to keep us safe. So, this virtual thank you card is to all of the first responders that answer calls for people in need at any hour of the day or night; I appreciate all that you do.

I designed this card using this sketch above, which has been “re-booted” for the current challenge on the CAS(E) this Sketch site. I’m not ready to move out of summer-y images yet, so I pulled out my Tropical Chic stamps and coordinating dies. I went to the DSP section of the Annual Catalog for the color inspiration and followed the color scheme of the Garden Lane paper. So pretty (and so very green)! I hope you like my interpretation of this sketch; please leave a comment to let me know what you think.
