Basic Training

A Young man from church has gone into Air Force Basic Training and his mother asked for anyone who would like to send words of encouragement to him, instead of just a letter I decided to also make a card.

The stars are from a border die of memory box, but I just cut off the stars and used them on the flag.

The red paper is from some paper I found at Big Lots some time ago,  the stripes I did from some 7 gypsies paper with text on it, this paper I have had for some time also.  The blue cardstock has some texture on it, and I cut out the stars with white cardstock and used some distress inks on them to try and match the striped paper, I distressed all the edges.  The border die I used was Night Sky border by Memory Box.

Hope your week is going well, it seems to be just flying by for me, I haven't had any creative time in the past couple of days :(

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,
