Thank You for Your Service

Hi, everyone.

Today's Any Hero card was inspired by Operation Write Home Sketch #208.

Bo Bunny Liberty
cardstock: Bazzill admiral and watermelon; Distress Ink antique linen
Paper Studio and Martha Stewart star punches
Marvy and Paper Shaper circle punches
Creative Memories circle cutting system
computer-generated sentiment (mistral)
Recollection foam adhesives

I originally wasn't sure about the sketch. Don't get me wrong -- I loved Heather's sample card, but I wasn't quite sure where this one would take me.

I ended up going with a pretty basic card -- no burlap, no embossing, no distressing. Used one of my favorite packs of designer paper and some rich cardstock. This card is also unusual because of the sentiment treatment. I often mat -- even double or triple mat -- sentiments to bring more attention to them. But, somehow, a plain white banner felt right for this card. Nothing fancy, just right.  :)

Parting Thoughts

One last reminder that the final day to submit cards for the very first W2SB challenge is Tuesday. Thanks to everyone for your support of this new monthly challenge blog.

Hope all the NFL fans out there enjoy today's games. My team's been back to 0-0 since the end of the regular season. But, these games sound like two great match-ups.

Have a great week. If your lucky enough to have tomorrow off, enjoy! And, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!


  1. That's a great Hero card using the sketch! I love the red, white & blue papers along with those red stars!

  2. Great card... I agree the sentiment pops without any matting. TFS!!!

  3. I really struggled with this sketch, also. I love how you added the stars to your full circles.

  4. Sybrina- your card is wonderful- I love that paper pad and you used it perfectly!

  5. I love how you used the sketch, Sybrina! Beautiful patriotic card!

  6. Lovely card Sybrina! The papers you used pulled it all together so well. :)
