It's My Turn - Splish Splash

As some of you know, I am a medically discharged Army Officer, so I couldn't be more honored to be hosting a challenge on Remembrance Day for Operation Write Home!  I hope you will join in my challenge or any other challenge this weekend to make cards for our deployed troops.
My challenge for you is to use Black & White with a Splash of Color!
Here is my set of cards for your inspiration:
I decided to make a set of kid-friendly cards.  I used Digi Papers and layout, so I just printed 3 copies (well, 4, as you'll see below), cut them, mounted them on a card base, added a sticker, and I was done.  Oh how I LOVE Digi Papers!
Operation Write Home does have some Guidelines for submitting cards, since these cards are going to combat zones.  Here is the original design for my card, which was rejected (by me, of course) because of the glitter on the little sticker.  BAD ME!
I'm sorta glad I had to reject this set of stickers because I'm really liking the Sesame Street set.
Link up your Black & White with a Splash of Color here:
