SSD026 Support our Troops

WOW!!! I can't believe how quickly this month has seemed to fly right by!! Can you believe it's our last sketch with the AMAZING Jen del Muro as our sketch artist and the wonderful Deb Felts and Jennifer Ingle. I really enjoy each month with our guests for Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesdays. The eye candy each week is inspiring!!!

For my card this week, I chose to use the new release, Home of the Brave. How ironic, that the only Canadian in the group got this set too!!! Heather must have channeled the fact that I did live in North Carolina for three years!!! NC will always have a piece of my heart - after all I did meet my amazing husband while I was living there. Because so many of the images in this set are truly American, I decided to use the ribbon image in support of the troops. I paper pieced the ribbons with a variety of DP's I had containing yellow. I decided to combine one of the smaller areas into the my actual yellow ribbon. I kinda like how it all turned out.

Great card Angela! I love the different patterns on the ribbons.

Love how you repeated the ribbon and then included the actual one as an embellishment! Great card!

I have loved being guest designer this month, playing with Jen's fabulous sketches! So fun! You may not be rid of me yet! ;)
