God Bless America Kool Kraft Challenge


I tell ya, the girls over at Our Daily Bread Designs are kickin' butt with this new set, God Bless America.....you have to check out the ODBD gallery!!!!! Today's Ways To Use It challenge over at Splitcoast was to use Kraft cardstock in any way for your project. I instantly thought about this flag, because I LOVE to color with my Signo gel pen on colored cardstock.....it creates a ceramic look.....too bad it doesn't photograph very well. Plus, I needed a "guy card" to mail to Uncle Jim in Tennessee.

Card details: I embossed the image with black ep on Kraft cardstock, colored with Ballet Blue, Ruby Red, and a Signo gel pen. Added some retired SU star eyelets, linen thread, and a cross to finish. I tried not to go overboard on embellishments since guys don't normally dig the fru-fru!!
This has just been added: Judy has just posted the Limited Supply challenge, which is to base your card on any May holiday......this fits Armed Forces Day and Memorial day perfectly! I'm sooooo glad I chose to use this set today!!!! Thanks, Judy, for the perfect challenge.....I love to kill more than one bird with each stone!!!

Thanks for stopping by! Hey, if you haven't done the ODBD sketch challenge, you still have a few days left! God Bless!
