Hi all. I have been MIA for a LONG time. So sorry about that. My job has kept me too busy to update my blog, but summer is almost here and I will have the summer off. YIPPEE! Enough about me and on to my post.
I combined several challenges into one card. Time is of the essence and I better make use of it. I used the MOJO90 sketch (http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/2009/06/mojo-monday-week-90.html) for my layout. I also incorporated some Verve stamps, Hero Arts stamp and QuicKutz dies into it as well. My main image of the children marching is from Stampin' Up(retired). The navy stars on the red stripe and the main top stars are all from Verve stamps. The bottom layer has a Hero Arts star from the "Tiny Festive Backgrounds" LK008 set stamped tone on tone with red and navy. The star curvy cut, red gingham curvy cut and the tiny polka dot curvy cut on the bottom mat are all die cut from the QuicKutz "borders" die. I used my Nesties for the main squares in my Wizard. I added a star bling to the stamped top layered star. I wish you could see the colors better - scanning just doesn't do it justice. I gotta figure out how to download pictures to my pc so I can take "real" photos of my cards. Oh well, that will have to wait for summer. :D
This card is going to my Dad. His birthday is June 14, Flag Day. I figured what better design for his card than a nice patriotic theme. The vintage scene is very appropriate for my Dad. Happy 78th birthday, Dad.
