Before I share today's card, I'd like to welcome Polka Dot Rosie to the blog. She is a wonderful crafter and is our Guest I-Teamer at Words 2 Scrap By this month. Welcome, Rosie! I'm so glad to have gotten to know you. :)
At least we have a really interesting OWH sketch to keep our creative juices flowing. Coni provided the wonderful card that inspired this week's sketch. As much as I like our sketch, I have to confess that it was a little intimidating for me.
To CAS-ify the sketch a little, I only used two patterns and went with a solid color, embossed background layer. After deciding on the major elements, I added the sentiment and taped down these key elements. Then I played with various circles and stars until I came up with a design that felt just right -- telling myself it was okay to not use all the sketch's circles. :)
Since this is an Any Hero card, I was able to make it thicker than typical OWH cards. So, the sentiment and lower left blue circle are popped using double layers of foam adhesives.
I like the final look of this patriotic card. The colors and shapes seem to have a nice balance to them. I hope it will convey our appreciation to one of more troops for his/her/their service.
