*************************************
This Week's Challenge:
FANCY FOLD WITH 4TH OF JULY, AMERICANA, or MILITARY THEME




I chose to used Owen Saluting Fallen Soldier, a past Friday Freebie that you should have picked up a few weeks ago. :) Speaking of Friday Freebie, be sure to check out the Sew Many Cards Challenge blog for this week's Friday Freebie.

I used a pop-up card pattern that was in a magazine, but I've done it before and have seen it online somewhere (perhaps Paper Craft Planet or Split Coast Stampers). I chose a floral K & Co. paper for my background, used colored pencils to color Owen, printed the Thank You sentiment, and then used a cat's eye chalk in green to distress and color the edges.


Good sentiment for the inside:

Over the mountains and through the woods

The Army is on the go,

They will stand and fight till the very end,

To protect us from our foes.


Thank you for what you are doing to keep our families safe.

Wishing you a safe return soon!

Thanks for looking at my card. Be sure to check out what everyone else came up with and enter your creation into the challenge blog.
