Hope the weekend is going well.
OWH Sketch #220 was the inspiration for today's Any Hero card.
Today's sketch was a departure from our typical sketches. And since I love Penny's cards, I will follow her almost anywhere.
Let's just say that it wasn't as hard as the challenge originally seemed but not quite as easy as Marlene described. :) Either way, glad I took on the challenge and hope the card below is worthy of one of our heroes.
A few quick notes:
- The dp I used is a paper that I only use for Any Hero cards. Gold Star families are families who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Despite the gorgeousness of this paper, I don't use it for cards going home to family and friends because of its gold star pattern.
- Because of the strength of the pattern in the paper, I decided against a sentiment. To try and soften the look of the card just a bit, I chose to add a scalloped banner across the top.
- The gold strip in the banner at the top was made by heat embossing a plain sheet of Recollections white using gold embossing powder.
Hope to get to a couple more Father's Day cards today. It's just so pretty outside, wish I had a screened in porch to make cards "outside".
The Words 2 Scrap By challenge to make a card inspired by the words Shine Like a Diamond is open until the 21st.
