Patriotic Thanks

I am preparing my last box of cards for Operation Write Home. They will no longer receive cards after August 1. That is a good thing as it means a lot of troops have returned home. But now I need to find another charity outlet for my excess cards. Any suggestions?
So this is a thank you card for Any Hero
Everything here is from Stampin' Up except the blue check DP from my scrap stash. The thin strip of gold is from SU's envelope liners that were in a kit. It always photos as black but IRL it is very shiny. And I now see it is also very crooked! ugh!! I stacked 4 layers of "thanks", bottom to top is black, red, white, blue. If you squint and look real close you can tell there are layers. Click on the image to get a larger view.
I was inspired by the sketch from Mojo Monday

Just Us Girls challenge is stacked die cuts so I will link up there as well.
