Today I am double dipping and putting two SCS Challenges together - something a lot of people do all the time, but I usually just have enough of a time with one challenge!
Today I combined Color Challenge 223 with Sketch Challenge 233. Click on the photo to see a close-up.
I extended panel #4 to fit my image better. Stamps are from a new Flourishes release called Patriotism on Parade. I love patriotic stamps and this is a really cute set! Part of the proceeds from this set will go to the Wounded Warrior program. This project aims to honor and empower our soldiers:
- To raise awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of severely injured service men and women
- To help severely injured service members aid and assist eachother
- To provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of severely injured service members.
Isn't that a great cause?! You can read more about it HERE.
I have also FINALLY found my favorite white cardstock base that is heavy enough and still stamps well. It's Papertrey Ink's Stamper’s Select White Cardstock. It has taken a lot of white paper samples to find the perfect cardstock base paper, but I think this is it! If you are looking for a nice weight for your card base, check it out!
Thanks for stopping by today!
