For my card, I knew immediately that I wanted to combine my Impression Obsession Stars with the Flower Soft "The Patriot" mix. I really like the red/white/blue Flower Soft combination and used it in conjunction with some 1/8" Redline tape to make a border around my stars. I thought it gave the finished card nice texture and dimension.

For the images, I stamped the IO Stars (K2189) and as well as the Let Freedom Ring saying (B3790) and then colored the stars with colored pencils. It is hard to tell from the picture, but I popped up the top left-hand star to add a bit more dimension. To finish the card, I added some clear gems and traced around each of the stars with a grey Copic marker.

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out the other blogs for inspiration and more chances to win!

I immediately thought what a great Any Hero card for Operation Write Home this would be. I was not familiar with Flower Soft until this blog hop and now I just gotta get me some! It gives your card (and honestly the other cards too) a wonderful dimension that finds you just wanting reach out and touch them. Fab card very well done!
