Freedom isn't Free!!

Welcome to my second post of the evening...only three more to go..:)

The image for this card is a beaut from The Paper Shelter.  The challenge this week is Buttons or Brads.  I chose brads.

Aint' she just too dang cute?  I wonder who she is waiting for?  Maybe her daddy, her brother, uncle, boyfriend...someone coming home from serving a tour overseas with the military?  Who knows.

She's printed on Neenah white card stock and colored with colored pencils.  The back ground of the image is done with chalks.  The card stock for this card is all from Colorbok.  The DP is DCWV Boyhood stack.  I followed the Feeling Sketchy sketch for this week to make this card.  I used Fiskars Shape Cutter to make the circle and a Fiskars Scalloped border punch for the bottom layer.  After matting the image, I used my new Tonic Retractable pick to make the holes for the Recollections Black brads.  I hand wrote the sentiment and inked it with DI Vintage Photo.  The image is inked with DI Vintage Photo too and then popped up on the card.

Thanks so much for hanging with me.  I appreciate it. God bless you.
