2019 Purple Heart
The Cover Above was the 2nd Place Winner of its Category in the 2018 AFDCS Cachetmakers Contest
I adjusted this design just a bit. As you can see I darkened the map background and lightened the Jenny Bi-Plane for added contrast... I still like the first one but think the new one is better.
I gave one of these covers to Franklin Graham & Family and received this nice letter of thanks from him for the gift.
I decided to also imprint portions of the cachet design onto the envelope that carried Franklin Graham's letter to me on the front and on the back along with an explanation of the significance of the envelope as a personal keepsake.
