a red, white and blue card. . . .

for my grandson who joined the Air Force in late 2012, finished boot camp early January 2013 and is now in technical training courses in Texas.  So very proud  of  him!



I used Penny Black Madison papers, an embossing folder from Cuttlebug, (love those stars!), the reverse wonky die from Spellbinders, and stamps from the Hero Arts year round sentiments and truly appreciated clear sets. I will no doubt be making lots more cards to send to him in the future, so I'm gonna' be on the lookout for red, white and blue "stuff" to use.

I will be entering this in the "anything goes" challenge at Simon Says Stamp for this week.

Have a wonderful weekend!
