Happy Veteran's Day


Not sure I really like this one. Used the color challenge from SPCC Christmas Combo #10.


Was stumped on how to do something different for this one, then remembered I'd won this great digital image from Little C's Stamp n' Scrap challenge a few weeks ago. I'm seeing the Girl Scout badges as patches (actually they are intermittently referred to that on the Girl Scout's website, yes I looked it up and to get ideas for the additional patches in the corner!). So the 3 circles on the upper left are patches that are loosely based on ones I found online. Then I wanted to sparkle her up a bit so added stickles to the patches on her sash, on the emblem on her hat, and on the center of the lei flowers. So I will also submit this to Papertake Weekly #28 challenge - Digi Sparkle, and Little C's/Stamp n' Scrap - dry embossing, and the layout is from CCBJ #37.



Okay, went a little crazy with the rick rack on this one but have never used it on a card before so was making up for missed opportunities! :) Layout is from ICS #42.
TFL and Aloha!!

That card with the deer just spoke to me! I loooove that stamp! But the patch card...that is thinking outside the box. Have you been sitting next to Rose by any chance?! Be careful or they'll lump you in with us "cheaters" I mean, "out of the box thinkers and uber creative girlies"!
