I found an easy challenge on the BoBunny blog. They give you a layout to make & you just post your version. It was a lot of fun with the paper I chose, called Liberty United. I love any paper that's aged or distressed.
"Soldier" was stamped in two two colors with the Token Alphabet. I REALLY need a circle punch for this, but hand cutting works too. The colors of the cardstock and inks are Denim & Cranberry. I am a huge Close To My Heart fan. All the inks & cardstocks match. They worked great with the BoBunny paper too!
The stars were cut on the Cricut, then sponge inked. I also sponged the scallops along the top. The lovely star was cut out of the B.B. paper and layered on a circle with a scallop edge for flair.
I love this photo, my son is wearing his grandpa's old Army hat. The soldier on a stick is my cousin, he's no longer in the Army. The phrase was a long sticker that I cut into three strips.
Now I am in the mood to make some patriotic decorations! I'm going to have to go back to Pine City Scrapbooking Co. and get more BoBunny Liberty line!!!
