Hi, friends!  One last card for today and then you'll be rid of me. ;)  This one is a patriotic card that I will be sending as an AnyHero card to Operation Write Home. Nothing says summer to me like anything Patriotic!  Visions of summer picnics and Fourth of July fireworks...root beer floats.  LOVE me some patriotic celebrations!  That's what inspired this card. :)

Here's the card~


For these fabulous challenges~


I've used stamps by Inspired By Stamping, pins by Maya Road, baker's twine and a button from my stash, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.  I colored in the originally off white pins with Sharpies to get the desired colors.  I'm very pleased with how they turned out!  I also created the background panel with one of my favorite techniques--stamping plus punched paper pieced plus dry embossing.  I LOVE the effect it creates!

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  I hope that you are inspired by it and that you come and join the fun with these fabulous challenge!  HUGS and happy stamping friends!

This is great Mynnette! That background turned out beautifully! I have never pressed paper cut outs onto dry embossing like that. I love the pleated ribbon/ twine/ button/ pin combo. It looks so simple, but there are so many elements!

LOVELY Anyhero card. Truly something that will make a hero feel special so far from home. I especially like your layered embellishment, I think that's what makes this super special. TFS!
