Happy Veteran’s Day!

I’ d like to wish all our veteran’s a Happy Veteran’s Day and express my heartfelt gratitiude for their service.

Now…on to stamping!  Created for the sketch challenge at SCS, this card uses the pretty Memory Box paper – Dewfrost for the background and squares.  I love the pale blue hues paired with winter white and a grey/chocolate neutral.

SC254 holly and ivy final

The image,  from Flourishes The Holly and The Ivy set,  was stamped and embossed in black and colored with the copic collections of Spruce and Flesh Tones 2 with the background airbrushed using colors from the Sky collection.

This is a large card – just over 6 inches tall!   It can be made smaller by using the smaller dove image in the stamp set. 

I hope you are enjoying this time of year – I’m working on more holiday cards and scoping out all the holiday magazines looking for inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by!

    This is gorgeous. Love the colours and the layout. I’m just about to colour some doves myself, hope they turn out as nice as this.
