Army Kidlets Christmas Card Commission

Morning all,

This time last year, I was asked to make a couple of Christmas cards for the following Christmas, i.e. for now, so a couple of months back I completed four Christmas cards for a lady that wanted special personalised cards for her grandchildren.

Just found out recently that they have all received and opened them, so it's safe to post away :) I shall upload a new one every other day...

For the card below I was told that the grandson loves soldiers/army etc, so I had to make a Christmas card that fitted this theme! Argh. I sourced a digi stamp, camouflage ribbon whilst I was on holiday back in May and hey presto, I'm pleased with the outcome so that it's both a little Christmassy, but soldier/army related and appropriate for a boy.
