You Make America Proud

Hi, everyone.

Happy Mother's Day to all our OWH and military moms. It's a bittersweet holiday for hubby and me as both of our moms have passed. We were so blessed to have such wonderful women in our lives, and have the fondest memories of times spent with our moms.

Today's Any Hero Card

Today's Any Hero card was inspired by OWH Sketch #172.

Signify Pink Pages of Honor
sentiment OWH digi by Paula
cardstock: Bazzill Admiral, AC white and dark gray, ??? yellow
punches: star from Paper Studio, circle from Paper Shapers
embossing with Distress Ink embossing pad and Inkadinkado gold powder

After deciding on the image and paper, I changed the dimensions of the elements to be more rectangular than square, keeping the corners on the center element. I also changed the position of the circle element -- and felt like I needed a second one of these to balance the card.

The look is a little busier than my usual style, but I think it turned out okay. In addition, I love this paper, but hesitate to use it for cards sent to family members because of the gold stars. A while ago, Sandy suggested it's use on Any Hero cards. And, this sketch seemed like a good fit for the paper.

Parting Thoughts

Again, Happy Mother's Day to all the moms in our OWH family. Hope you're enjoying a wonderful celebration with loved ones.

Have a great week. As always, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!

Great card! I agree, the stars look terrific for an Any Hero card, and that word art looks just perfect for this week's sketch.

Sybrina, this card came out great. I really like the rectangular shape and the double circles. Nice idea to use the gold stars as any any hero card.
