To Honor Our Veterans this Holiday, CCCC61

To honor our Veterans this Holiday. A tribute to all who have served our country.

Dedicating this card for my dear Uncle Sal & my terrific Father who has proudly served WWII. Unfortunately, my Uncle has suffered two strokes this year and I hope this brings him some courage with his recovery. Additionally, I really hope Dad can see this card from heaven.

My original creation for Stacy Schafer's Stamping Stage Curtain Call Color Challenge Act #61. The sentiment & dove are heat embossed. For the edge sponging I'd used two colors first with Early Espresso and then Bravo Burgundy.

Below, a peek inside along with a stamped envelope.
Stamp Recipe: Courage, Hero Jumbo Wheel, Peaceful Season-Hostess, Just Believe (inside)
Up In The Stars
Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso. Bravo Burgundy, Craft White
Paper: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Sponge, embossing powder, Tim Holtz embossing Distressing Ink, Curly Label- extra large punch

Hope you like my creation as much as I do.

Happy Holidays and God Bless America.
