Operation Write Home Holiday Challenge Cards!

Hi everyone! Still working on the Operation Write Home challenges from the weekend! It seems that I'm usually out of town for the "stamping holidays", like World Scrapbooking Day or World Card-making Day, etc., so it's been fun to be a part of an event like this, especially when our troops will be blessed by it!
Our Daily Bread designs "Angel" Designer Angie Crockett
Both of these cards today are for Sybrina's challenge, which is to create a holiday card for one of our Heroes, plus create a holiday card which can be mailed home to a child.
I will also be submitting this to the Crafty Cardmakers "Winged Things" Challenge and the Aud Sentiments Christmas Challenge.

Card 'Ingredients' for the Angel card:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Angel';
Cardstock: Stampin Up Mellow Moss;
Designer Paper: Memory Box 'Mistletoe';
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Stampin Up Inks and Markers (the angel's gown was colored with a sponge dauber and burgundy ink);
Accessories: Zva Creative Pearls, paper piercer and template;
Size: A2.
Our Daily Bread designs "Warm Wishes" Designer Angie Crockett
 Since I don't have many stamps for children (other than dinosaurs and dump trucks!), I used the Our Daily Bread designs "Warm Wishes" set for this one. Even though Stickles are allowed, I know that the glitter can still rub off at times, so I decided to do a bit of sponging instead, and leave it plain.

Your cards are so beautiful! Your coloring is exquisite -- and the border piercings are the perfect finishing touches.

Good luck with the challenges.
