God Bless the U.S.A.

Hi, everyone!

OWH Sketch #235 is the inspiration for today's Any Hero card... well, sort of.  :)

Distress Ink fired brick, Bazzill admiral, Crate Paper rose garden
Unity sentiment in SU Night of Navy
Cuttlebug and Darice embossing folders
Really Reasonable Ribbon ribbon
punches: Paper Studio star and ??? (tiny star) corner
Creative Memories circle cutting system
Recollection foam square adhesives; Ranger multi-medium matte

I started with the best of intentions. But, I realized too late in the game that the back panel was supposed to be two different papers/patterns. I also went with a slightly larger circle to frame the sentiment circle. And, while I decided to go with three stars for my three embellishments, I chose three of the same size and placed them around the sentiment as opposed to having them cascade down the card.

Boy, this card sure did turn into a fourth-of-July kind of card.... didn't it?!

Parting Thoughts

Well, weather might be getting a little interesting here. Should probably make this short and sweet.

Words 2 Scrap By will post our August challenge on Friday.

Enjoy your Sunday. Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!

  3. I love when a sketch takes twists and turns of it's own mind! It turned out great! We're expecting wicked storms this evening too. Stay safe!

  4. I really like how you framed the sentiment with the stars and you used my favorite embossing folder! Great card, Sybrina!

  5. I love everything about this card. I especially love how you offset the mats for the stars and circle. It adds so much interest.
