Freedom

Today we honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  Thank you for our freedom!

To create my card, I combined images from Artistic Outpost's Hero and She-roes plates.  The Kraft panel is embossed with the Cuttlebug Stars Folder.  To add color to the flag I used markers, then added Antique Linen Distress Ink to the edges.  The little solider boy was colored using markers, the background sponged with Antique Linen.  To add softness to my coloring, I lightly spritzed with water, then smooshed onto a Non Stick Craft Mat, to blend the lines.  This image, the Flag and sentiment were crinkled a bit and sponged again to have an aged look.
