Sweet Land of Liberty

Hi, everyone.

Today's Any Hero card was inspired by OWH Sketch #181. When I first saw the sketch, "USA" immediately popped in my head for the square element. The rest of the card flowed from there.

Bo Bunny Anthem; Distress Ink core (antique linen, fired brick, chipped sapphire)
computer-generated sentiment (Times New Roman; R: 184, G; 0, B; 0)
Distress Ink vintage photo for inking of paper and twine; garage sale brads
; Zots 3D glue dots

This one got a big thumbs up from hubby!  :)

Even though this was a pretty busy sketch, the card feels calm to me. Interesting enough, I consider myself a CAS aficionado. Yet, I struggled more with last week's simpler sketch. Hmmm...

Parting Thoughts

Have a great week. I'm hoping to find time to play with the new Paper Smooches Super stamp set.

Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!

This one got a big thumbs up from hubby.

Absolutely love it! I think your papers and the blue matting give it a very serene feel! I love how you have the sentiments placed!

I love how you used the twine for the vertical element in the sketch! And the bling is a great touch.
