Stampers Best Heartland & Sketch Challenge #215 OWH

Happy Sketch Sunday everyone! Details for today's Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge 
can be found here:

For this card I used Stampers Best "Heartland" rubber stamp and you can find it here:

Stampers Best is one of my favorite companies, not only because they support Operation Write Home, but also because they make great deep red rubber stamps. 

I layered the image on paper from my stash, added some hand stitching with Omega Thread in red, added some brads in the corners, and a sentiment from the Missing You set from Our Daily Bread that you can find here:

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers I purchased from my favorite on-line store: 

Karen at Bee Creative is the one who made the travel bags for the marker racks (from Spectrum Noir)  so all the markers stay divided and sorted the way I like them.
