A Tribute Fit for a Hero

Hi, everybody!

Boy, what a gorgeous day here. Perfect for a long walk and some reading out on the front porch!

Today's Any Hero card was inspired by OWH Sketch #219. The inspiration for the sketch was one of Kathryn's cards. Kathryn is one of my favorite card makers and it was great seeing one of her creations featured today. :)

Bo Bunny Liberty; Distress Ink core antique linen
Bazzill admiral and watermelon; Crate Paper cottage collection neutral
Martha Stewart and Paper Studio star punches
Creative Memories circle cutting system; crimper
garage sale brads; Tombow foam adhesives

When I decided on the starburst/ray paper, I felt this paper needed to be at the bottom. Then, I thought the circle element should be on the left so as to not cover up the blue design on the right of the paper. While the basic elements are the same, I've taken a little poetic license with their placements. The only thing I would change is to move the three brads a little closer to the right edge of the bottom paper. But, that paper is not going anywhere now.  :)
Parting Thoughts

Short and sweet today... the sun is calling my name. And a good friend is celebrating her birthday. So, a phone call is in order.  And, yes, there are Father's Day cards to make.  :)

Have a great week! A quick reminder that the April challenge is underway at Words 2 Scrap By. As always, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!


  1. Poetic License is always a good thing. That way we know what a creative mind you have. This is a wonderful card. Have a fun day in the sun and on the phone.

  2. I like the way you tweaked the sketch! The sunburst (starburst) paper is awesome and really works with it on the bottom. Love the layered stars too!

  3. I like how you changed the card from the sketch just a little to make it your own. Very nice card.
