Sassy Patriotic Card

I made this card to include in the care package we send monthly to a soldier stationed overseas. I thought this 4th of July Honey from Sassy Studio Designs would be perfect!

I used this week's Midnight Madness sketch challenge (MMSC63) for the layout. It was a fun sketch to work with. I'm also entering it into Cooking it up with Katie challenge #22 (Blue, buttons and bows).

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you are having a great week.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: 4th of July Honey from Sassy Studio Designs, sentiment Verve American Her0
Ink: Printer, Real Red, PTI Enchanted Evening
Paper: PTI ssw, Real Red, PTI Enchanted Evening, Provo Craft striped
Embellishments: Nesties, copics, MS border punch, Marvy star punch, buttons, twine, SU ribbon, sakura stardust pen

Hi Kathy! This is supercool and very patriotic! Some soldier will be very happy, but maybe also a little bit homesick - wanting to get back home to a sassy girl like this! Great job!

Thanks for joining Midnight Madness Challenge, we love to come see your work and hope you will play with us again next week!
