You are not forgotten!!

Hello my stamping friends! Hope you all are doing well on this super sunny and hot Thursday! I have a card to share with you all today that I've made using two of the new releases from Our Daily Bread Designs, called "Not Forgotten"  and  "Old Flag BG".  The "Old Flag BG" was directly stamped unto some designer paper I had for a long time (sorry don't recall the name). For the soldier image I used Palette Moulin Rouge and aged it with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink in Tea Dye. The words "you are not forgotten" were stamped in ODBD's Steel Blue. Have a look at my

You are not forgotten


Paper: SU Buckaroo Blue ( I believe it is retired), PTI Rustic Cream, textured blue cs from my stash (can't quite recall the name, sorry) Bless America themed paper from my stash

Stamps: ODBD Old Flag BG, Not Forgotten

Ink: ODBD Steel Blue, Palette Moulin Rouge, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Tea Dye

Accessories: Spellbinders Petite Ovals Large, Labels 21, red/white/blue grosgrain ribbon, SU star brads

What do you think? Pretty simple card, but I wanted to keep the importance of the Old Flag and this wonderful image of a soldier leaving for deployment. I think in this case less is more!

Well, this is it for me for today!  I am taking my girls out for a little while. This is there last week of summer vacation. Tomorrow we have meet the teacher. My girls are not quite ready to go back to school, but they've gotta do what they've gotta do, right? ;D

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hugs and blessings,
