A Patriotic Card for a Challenge August 6, 2011

This card is for Dude Time Doodles’ August Challenge.  It is a sketch challenge, and I used a digital image called The General.  Pretty tough looking guy, right?  You can find him here.

For this card, I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the star background onto some colored cardstock from Archivers.  The designer papers are from my stash.  The red, white and blue paper is left over from a calendar I made last year, and the blue paper is some that I purchased from My Sentiments Exactly.  I colored the image with a combination of Copic and Neopiko 2 markers.  It will be one of my hero cards for my next shipment to Operation Write Home.
