This week's Stamp Something Challenge is to use sentiments. Once I saw this, I knew the sentiment and perfect stamp set to use. Since today is Memorial Day, I pulled out my retired Stampin Up! set Godspeed and got to work.
Stamping my background images in Stampin Up! brilliant blue, and then the main image in not quite navy with creamy caramel stippled around the edges, gave the card a "sandy" look as if it was written, and sent, from the desert.
My sentiment is from My Time Made Easy's May digital release called For Dad. Pulling out my prismacolor markers, I colored the DAD in a light blue and then the banner in a mustard yellow. For the final touch, I stamped, colored, and cut out a yellow ribbon to place in the upper right hand corner of the card.
For all of our troops serving overseas, and here in the United States, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!! To my nephew's Matt and Alex, please stay safe on your deployments. You will be in our prayers.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.
