Stand Firm



I'm loving these new images by Dina Kowal for ODBD...perfect for sending to service men and women! Today's featured stamper on SCS is teristampsalot & I thoroughly enjoyed browsing her gallery. I was inspired by the color combo she used a couple of times, so went with the turquoise, red and kraft for this card. I used the layout for Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and am entering this into ODBD's Shining Light Challenge to take inspiration from this phrase: "You're a grand old flag, you're a highflying flag". I inked the BG stamp using Tim Holtz' Broken China & Fired Brick distress inks. The soldier image was also inked with China Clay and the sentiment was stamped in black. Because I added the burlap element, I used kraft for the card base. I layered the star die border over the ruffled ribbon and added silver pearls. Thanks for visiting...hope you take time to comment and let me know what you think!

I just love the cards you've made with this image! The sentiment over the top looks fantastic and the burlap is a perfect accent! Too bad about #24 yesterday, huh? I really thought he was going to have a much better finish.
