God Bless America! - MMSC3

My submission for this week's Midnight Madness challenge was obviously inspired by Memorial Day. Here's to all those who gave their lives for our beloved country.

Priscilla came up with another great sketch which I encourage all of you to try! My card features a papertole image of an adorable patriotic little boy, meticulously handcut & layered 4X, then all glittered up! Woo hoo! Couldn't keep me away from the glitter this time :) lol

I layered some pretty patriotic paper by Miss Elizabeth with lots of textured cardstock and added a little more texture to the star paper with a cuttlebug folder. It's all stitched together with a shiny metallic silver thread. I thought the decorative stitch around the edge mimicked the little boy's banner and used a simple straight stitch for the panels.

The letters are chipboard by DCWV and I'm not sure you can see it in the pix, but this time I stamped little stars all over them with clear Emboss-it and heat embossed with bridal embossing tinsel. They have a pretty subtle sparkle that turned out perfect! Some ribbon, star brads w/spacers and glossy accents on his eyes and shoes and that's it.

Check out what the rest of the team created then try it out yourself! We love to see your interpretations, not to mention you could win a fun badge and/or a fabulous prize!


I hope everyone had a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend! I'll share what our family did later this week :)

Keep Smiling!
