This morning on my drive into work, I was listening to US92 and the dj was telling about a soldier from Northeast Nebraska who was seriously injured in Iraq. They were asking for prayers for Spc. Eric Raymond of Wisner, NE who was wounded while patrolling the streets of Baghdad. He's back in the States now recovering and it would be great to show him our support!
If you are interested, you may send cards, letters and well wishes to:
Spc. Eric Raymond
7113 A Garcia Blvd
Fort Lewis, WA 98433
So, that is where my inspiration came from for this card. I had recently used this same patterned paper for a 4th of July card that I posted and I had some pieces leftover. It is by doodlebug design, inc. (946 yankee doodles & 947 stars and stripes). The card base and the round scalloped circle are Stampin' Up! brilliant blue. The bottom strip and the corners are SU real red. I printed "FREEDOM" on my pc using the Stampin' Up! font cd - Contempo Caps. "God Bless the U.S.A. is cut from the patterned paper and framed with a small piece of real red. The flag is a retired Stampin' Up! stamp "God Bless America". I inked it with markers and eliminated the phrase underneath so it would fit within my mega white circle punch out.
I still intend to create two more scalloped punch cards this week, so stay tuned!
Smiles, Pam : )
