If you noticed the big announcement in the previous post, then you already know there's an Independence Day virtual card making party going on over at the Stars & Stamps blog today & tomorrow. The festivities have already begun, and you'll find lots of inspiration and challenges along the way to get you started! You'll find blog candy along the way, and different challenges posted every 2 hours today & tomorrow, so stop by the Stars & Stamps blog often this weekend!
Today I'm giving you a challenge to create a card using an image or sentiment that represents what FREEDOM means to you! The card I made today will be an ""any hero" card going into my next OWH box.
I chose this gorgeous bald eagle free digi image from Crafty Journal for my card, because every time I see an eagle, I automatically think of how proud I am to be a citizen of the US where we are blessed to live in freedom! I'd like to give a grateful shout out to all of our military men & women who have served, as well as those who continue serving this country, to ensure that our freedom remains in tact! Without them, we wouldn't even be celebrating Independence day this weekend!!
I colored this image with Copics and matted it with labels 10 and a top note die. Of course I used the good old red, white & blue flag colors to compliment this majestic creature! The sentiment is from Marks Finest Papers. The background was done with the CB star embossing folder.
I know this is probably a very busy holiday weekend for most of you, but after you barbeque the chicken and have a smore or two, please try to take a little time to play along with any or all of the challenges you'll find during this virtual card-making party! Our soldiers really appreciate the cards we make and send to them! They'll also be announcing the winners of the second million challenge, so you won't want to miss a thing!
Have a safe and fun Independence Day weekend and thanks for stopping by!
