A Patriotic Thanks!

Hi, everyone.

Today's Any Hero card was inspired OWH Sketch #183. Still loving this yummy Bo Bunny Anthem paper. :)

Bo Bunny Anthem dp; Distress Ink core, lightly sanded
sentiment heat embossed in Distress Ink vintage photo
Fiskars star punch: Stampin' Up! brads; Zots 3D glue dots

Love today's sketch. There's just something about CAS sketches that makes me smile. They seem to make it just a little easier to mix paper patterns.

I took special care to punch out the star so that the blue field would be in the upper left portion of the star. Played with different embellishments before deciding on the 3 neutral brads.

For the Bo Bunny Liberty collection, I usually use Bazzill admiral and watermelon cardstock. But, I'm finding the Distress Ink palette works really well with the Anthem collection. Bo Bunny and Distress Ink: a combo made in paper heaven!

Parting Thoughts

Enjoy the rest of the weekend -- it's so pretty here -- and have a great work week!

As always, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!

Love these gorgeous, vintage Patriotic papers Sybrina. This makes a terrific any hero card. That star is perfect as the corner element. I finally treated myself to a 6x6 pad of these. Now just to make a point of turning them into some any hero cards.

I love the paper you used and taking care to make sure that part of the blue was in the start. It gives a distressed feel that is cool.

Love the rustic feel of this card. The star is perfect! The hero who gets this will know someone appreciates him.
