American Hero


I made this card to send to Jon,who is the son of one of my very good friends. 
He left for his first tour of Afghanistan 5 weeks ago. He is such a good young man. 
Please pray for him and all the soldiers fighting for our country.

I got my inspiration for this card from this week's  Mojo Monday Sketch #195:

The sentiment is from a stamp set American Hero that Verve Stamps has on sale this month. When I saw this stamp set, I just knew it would be perfect for  the cards that I plan to send to Jon. I changed a few things with the sketch. I substituted stars for flowers in the lower left corner of the sentiment. I cut the stars out of the designer paper that is used for the background panel. And as you can see, I also made a rectangle instead of a circle for the sentiment. The little rows of stars behind the sentiment were made with a fun Star Border Die-Namics die from My Favorite Things.

Thanks for stopping by!
