I Need A Hero

Don't we all?!!! Today's card was made with just that thought in mind. I think of the brave men and women of the Armed Forces when I think of hero. Being a former military wife myself, I know the sacrifice that they and their families make every day to protect our freedom and this is my shout out to them.
This is the free image I earned by participating in the weekly challenges at Hambo Hoedown.  You can find the details here.  This week's challenge is a layout challenge.

I colored the image using Copic markers and then cut it out and placed it on the oval panel I cut using my Nestabilities.

For the blue background I embossed it using a Fiskars embossing plate and my cuttlebug.  I then inked it up with Versamark and dusted on some gold Pearl Ex powder.

To make the stars I used my Cricut and George cart and then added glossy accents  I also added glossy accents to the medal.  Thats pretty much it.

Until next time, thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  TTFN

Hugs, Becky
