Red Apple with Stripes and Green

Such a happy card with all the different stripes and a bright red apple.  It makes me smile! and I hope it will do the same for a deployed hero and a loved one back home. 

When I was working on the design, I found that adding the narrow green strip under "hello" had a big impact to ground the focal point and give definition to the multicolor stripes.

Created for Operation Write Home, "supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them." (453)
