Stars & Stamps Sketch 124 - for a Hero

Here's my card for this week's Stars & Stamps sketch challenge #124. I used BG Granola dsp along with some chocolate brown and cream colored cardstock. The sentiment was done with an AMuse set, and colored with a B21 Copic marker after stamping in Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I cut it using a SB square swatch die and added some copper brads to the corners. The honeycomb background was done with a SB M-bossability So Trendy folder, and I added scalloped borders done with a SNSS scalloped border die. The brown twill is from my stash. This will be an any hero card going into my next box. I decided that all hero cards don't necessarily need to be red, white, & blue, so I'm trying to use some other colors.
Here's this week's sketch...

I hope you're enjoying your Sunday so far, and thanks ever so much for spending a few minutes of you day with me here. :-)

I love blue and brown together. (Even have them in sea glass in my bathroom tile.) I also love all the textures and agree that it's probably nice to switch things up from red, white, and blue for hero cards! Super job!

OOOH, this is lovely! Love the brown and blue and the texture!!

Carol, what a nice card. I love the background paper also. I agree with you on the colors of any hero cards. I send quite a few in other colors because I feel that some of our heroes may get sick of receiving the same colors all the time. Talk to you soon.

I had it in mind for the longest time that hero cards should be patriotic colors, so much so that I didn't even recognize the stamp you used that I also own! I think you made a gorgeous card. Thanks for a push in the direction of other color combinations!
