American Soldier

Decided to make another Veteran's Day card.  My sister volunteers at a Veterans Home, and I have been making cards for them for the past couple years.  I like to make a different and original card for each Veteran.  I know I am early, but I'm sure it will be here before you know it.  
Used the sketch from Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge #167 as my inspiration.
I used ODBD Soldier stamp as my focal.  
Stamped the image in black ink on craft colored paper, then matted it on white.  The star background was made by applying Distressed ink to the embossing folder before running it through my Big Shot.  Then added a blue layer, the striped layers and twine before popping up the image with foam tape.  Used a small star punch to create the three stars on bottom and top.  I love this image!
Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog! Have a blessed weekend!
