A Salute to the Armed Forces!

What a week!  Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday!  WooHoo!  

I made this card for a challenge in an online group I just joined.  The card needed at least 2 circles, Real Red or Cherry Cobbler and a Congratulations theme.  What do you think?  Can you guess what occasion it celebrates?  :)


The card base is Real Red followed by mats of Whisper White and  Night of Navy.  The Night of Navy layer was run through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  The circles were made with circle dies.  The scalloped trim circle border was made using the Scallop Trim border punch. (This was my first attempt.  Don't look too closely.  LOL)  The sentiment was printed in MDS (LOVE it!) on Whisper White and punched out with the Wide Oval punch.  That piece was layered on to a Lots of Tags die-cut.  Whisper White taffeta ribbon and a bow was the finishing touch.  

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- none.  Ink- none.  Paper- Whisper White, Real Red, Night of Navy.  Accessories- My Digital Studio, Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Lots of Tags Sizzlit, 3 1/2" Circle die, 3" Circle die, Circles #2 die, Scalloped Trim border punch, Wide Oval punch, Whisper White taffeta.
Thanks for visiting!
