Patriots Day Card Challenge Take 2

Standard

This is take two for me regarding this challenge. I’m still a wee little card maker – I’m only 11 days old as of today. 🙂 I wasn’t pleased with the outcome of my first card – see the post below – love the papers but they’re all the same tones so it all kinds of blends together.

The challenge was to create a Thank You card with a patriotic theme for a hero or first responder. This was a joint venture between May Arts and Operation Write Home. OWH also has a Midweek Throw Down Any Hero Challenge.

I started with white cardstock base and used paper from the DCWV Summer Stack. Solid blue from PaperGarden Cropping Block Shades Blue Pack. Stars from a Jolee’s Hockey set. Sentiment from TPC Studio Whimsy Greetings Set in Ink It Up Royal Blue (a little too turquoisy but hey, it’s my first stamp, ever.)
