Today's Any Hero card is inspired by OWH Sketch #234.
Ellen's sample card is so darn cute. But, I tend to freak a little when working with more involved sketches. So, I started inside out -- designing the sentiment, banner, and circle pieces first. Then I chose solid cardstock for most of the rest of the card -- embossing the red background piece and only using one piece of patterned paper. And, I'm actually pretty pleased with the results. :)
A couple of points worth noting. Since this is an Any Hero card, I used two layers of foam adhesive for the banner portion, with the circle/star element having a single layer of foam adhesive. After placing the banner and circle elements, I felt like the card was a little left-side heavy. After taking another look at the sketch, I realized I had placed the banner a little more left then intended. So, I added the three tiny blue stars to the bottom right.

If you're interested in playing along with us at Words 2 Scrap By, the deadline to link up a card for our July challenge is tomorrow. Would love for our OWH friends to join us. :)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a great week. Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
