I'm very excited because one of my friend over at StampTV , Vicki Dutcher, sent me an invitation to play along on a new color challenge at Speedy the Cat's Friends blog. The challenge is to make a card or project using the colors Red, White and Blue (doesn't have to be patriotic). When I got the email invite, I was already in the process of creating a card for Gina's new technique challenge at StampTV this week. Woohoo...a two-fer!!!
My card does happen to be patriotic because memorial day is in a few weeks, and I am from a family of US military patriots that goes all the way back to the Revolutionary War and continues in Iraq and Afghanistan today. I'm going to send this card to "any hero" at Operation Write Home along with some other cards I've made for them. It can apply to male or female - as we all know it's not just men putting their lives on the line in our military.
Thanks, Vicki - here's my card.
CS: GKD Pure Luxury white, In the Navy and Red Hot. Stamps are GKD Lovely Labels, Guiding Light, by Rupa Shevde and Masculine Messages. The background letterpress technique is showcased by Gina K at StampTV this week and I used Vivid "Garnet" to get the effect. Go on over and check it out.
Have a great day!
