Thank you for your Service!

Hi Everyone!

Hope you had a wonderful and spectacular 4th of July for all my American friends and a lovely week! We had a super sweet holiday spending time with some close family friends and went down to the water to see the fireworks light up the sky! It always amazes me - every single time, I am just blown away by the colors, combinations and shapes of the fireworks that light the sky- but more than anything it is watching them with my friends and family - that is really what makes everything so special.

And so on that note, I wanted to make a special card to someone who is serving the US who is not able to spend time with their family because they are in active duty - so I used the wonderful Stars & Stripes stamp set with Coordinating Die from Taylored Expressions :) I started by creating the base with the Ray of Sunshine Cutting Plate with the DP from the Doodle Bug Stars & Stripes paper pack and then cut the die of America with some DP and popped up the sentiment: Thank You For Your Service over part of the US and then ini shed it off with the Pennant Border Die on the side with some bling:

Here is a closer peek at the card from a different angle:

Card Ingredients:
Stamps:Stars & Stripes stamp set with Coordinating Die
PaperDoodle Bug Stars & Stripes
Inks: Memento Bahama Blue 
Accessories: die of the United States comes with the Stars & Stripes stamp set with Coordinating Die,  Pennant Border DieRay of Sunshine Cutting Plate , Bling, ribbon and dimensionals. 

There are so many wonderful souls who serve this country - something that is easy to take for granted - making this card was super quick and easy and made me happy and I hope that it mades someone's day :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Wishing you a wonderful weekend of happiness!!
Ciao for now!
Sankari :)
