OCC Challenge: Sentiments

Hi Everyone!

Here is my card for today's OCC challenge. This week the challenge is to put focus on the sentiment of the card. I made this for a friend of ours who is retiring from the Marine Corps after an outstanding 20+ years of service. This family is special to us because when Reagan was first born and I had to return to work, his wife took care of her. It was great because they lived right next door to us and she was so great, which made me very grateful! We were fortunate enough to reconnect in Okinawa a few years ago, which just goes to show you that it really is a small world! I also thought it would be a good card to show since it's Memorial Day Weekend.
Have a great weekend!
