Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day!!

Over on the wish-RAK forum yesterday, they were running something similar to a VSN and my friend Lori (LMcAree) was chosen as a host for one of the challenges. I haven't been involved in wish-RAK for a while now, but I am still a member and wanted to participate in Lori's challenge. The challenge was to make a card to honor our troops, past or present by making a card that included something patriotic. HERE'S THE LINK to the challenge if you want to check it out.

I used my new Quilt/Chair stamp by Rubber Cottage that I bought at the stamp show last weekend. I colored it with prisma pencils (blended with gamsol) as well as some Copic markers. The strip of adhesive stars running down the right side of the card were gifted to me from Lori, as was the Swirls & Stars stamp set, which I used on the inside of the card along with some sponging. Thanks for the stars, Lori!! {hugs} The red matted panel behind the chair is up on dimensionals.

Hop on over to the wish-RAK thread (if you're a member of that forum) and play along if you get a chance! My card will be going to the Cards for Heroes Organization...great cause!!
